The banana as an art object and a symbol of a generation - The Velvet Underground and counterculture of the Big Apple in the 60 Paris celebrates them with an exhibition to the Philharmonie, a tribute to the short but legendary career of the rock band and Lou Reed 50 years of "Banana Album", but also a unique era of great artistic and musical ferment. In an innovative set design, inspired by the verticality of the skyscrapers of New York and dominated by black and oversaturated colors, successive photos and vintage posters, underground film clips and video interviews made ad hoc, magazines, fanzines and vinyl collector, and spaces listening to which each visitor can 'engage' with your own personal headphones, provided the entrance. To mark the space, a series of totems, dedicated to the protagonists, from the beginning, almost random, the belated consecration: Lou Reed and John Cale, Sterling Morrison, Moe Tucker, "the blond iceberg" Nico and the world around them and he inspired, by the beat poet Allen Ginsberg to Andy Warhol and the whole creative circus Factory. Many photos and projections are dedicated debut album "The Velvet Underground & Nico" (1967), produced by Andy Warhol, who also designed the famous banana on the cover, one of the most important and influential rock albums of all time. "All too innovative, too outrageous, too frontal and too alternative for their own time, the Velvet Underground are an unsurpassable model for the movements of the following decades, the explosion of punk to the present day", say the curators of the exhibition, which also includes a final section with works of contemporary art inspired by their universe, their style or their most iconic images. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of concerts and debates. On the weekend of April 2 and 3 there will be two performance event, the historic New York punk band Television and John Cale. In May, however, a special event will be dedicated to Warhol and its cinematographic experiments, with the screening of 15 feature films ever shown in public accompanied by the performance of a team of musicians halfway between the Seventies and the twenty-first century.
