HEADLINES! A Modern Take on Warhol’s Electric Newspaper Hosted by Busboys and Poets 5th & K, 7pm - 11pm

Bringing the news headlines to life! …through a multimedia experience of overlapping performance and visual art we explore the ironies and idiosyncrasies of the mainstream news narrative.

This multimedia event will draw on Andy Warhol’s HEADLINES art (currently on view at the National Gallery of Art) to explore the manipulation of the mainstream media and the role of artistic interpretation. The event is centered around Warhol’s “Electric Newspaper,” an audio collage of news clips, live music and beat poetry that reveals the absurdity of the mainstream media. With modern reinterpretation of the “Electric Newspaper” we create a similar experience with a performance-driven event focused on today’s news headlines:

- TROY DAVIS
- DC & PALESTINIAN STATEHOOD
- OCCUPY WALL STREET
