This fall, NYC is getting an amazing exhibit dedicated to the iconic rock band, The Velvet Underground.
The exhibition, “The Velvet Underground Experience,” will run from October 10 through December 30 in NoHo. The 12,000-square-foot space at 718 Broadway will include films, videos, portraits, live concerts, photographs, a musical workshop, and a VR experience.
It originally debuted in Paris two years ago, but the NYC run will feature more. It will have six sections, each broken down into a different part of the band’s journey. It explores America after WWII and the Beat Generation, how Lou Reed and John Cale met, the art scene of NYC that shaped them, the band’s time spent at Andy Warhol’s Factory, the band’s reinvention with The Velvet Underground and Nico, and—the newest section to the exhibition for its NYC edition—how the rock band influenced and inspired so many artists across all platforms.
The exhibit’s organizer, Christian Fevret, told the Times in an interview: “It’s giving back to New York what New York gave us.”
Presale tickets to “The Velvet Underground Experience” are currently available for Citi card holders, but will open to the general public on August 17 for purchase.
