Knives Out

On Friday, November 28 at 8pm, Cranbrook Art Museum will welcome nospectacle for a program loosely based on "Exploding Plastic Inevitable," the multimedia happening organized by Andy Warhol in the mid-1960s and first performed at a dinner for the New York Society for Clinical Psychiatry. The show will include reinterpretations of music by The Velvet Underground, visual elements that recall the milieu of Warhol's Factory and original sound and video material by Chris McNamara.

Walter Wasacz is writer/editor/photographer and co-founder of the sonic collective art Paris '68; Jennifer Paull is a sound/visual artist; and Chris McNamara is a sound/visual artist, founder of the electronic music group Thinkbox and professor at the Screen Arts and Cultures Department at the University of Michigan.
