— Activities inside 'Silver Songs. The Music of Andy Warhol'

12 May — 18 June 2017

The Factory Alive! With LOS GANGLIOS, LAURA LLANELI, ESTHER AGUILÀ, PLAUDITE, BERTA FONTBOTÉ, EINA, Centre Universitari de disseny i Art, EASD Serra i Abella, EMMCA Escola de música Centre de les Arts de L’H, Associacions vinculades a la regidoria de salut de L’Hospitalet

During the opening days of the Silver Songs. The Music of Andy Warhol exhibition, the former Can Trinxet textile factory will temporarily become The Factory, Warhol’s studio-workshop and the epicenter of New York underground culture during the sixties. Here in Can Trinxet musicians, artists, students, citizens and associations from L’Hospitalet will be invited to participate in a relational art project based on artistic concepts that can be found in the exhibition on Andy Warhol and music. Thus, the Los Ganglios music band will work with artist Laura Llaneli on the basis of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable project, a leading action in the field of expanded cinema that was born in The Factory from the collaboration between The Velvet Undeground and Andy Warhol. Meanwhile, the graphics communication materials for the project by Los Ganglios and Laura Llaneli will be developed within the exhibition space by the Eina school of design by means of silk screen printing workshops led by Enric Mas. The Serra i Abella school of art and design of L’Hospitalet will likewise carry out sessions featuring screen tests, one of the foremost contributions Warhol made to video art from The Factory. The recordings will star sufferers from associations related to the Department of Health of L’Hospitalet, including people with mental disorders, Alzheimer’s disease and Alcoholics Anonymous members. The multiple sclerosis and mental health associations will participate in engraving and mail art workshops taught by artists Ester Aguilar and Berta Fontboté, respectively.

The factory alive! is an art and territorial project conceived by Artur Muñoz and Albert Mercadé
