London-based company MPC to help MoMA and The Warhol museum
to digitize previously unseen Warhol films
Paraphernalia by Andy Warhol
London-based company MPC is being utilized by MoMA and The Warhol museum to digitize what is being described on the BBC website as "hundreds of unseen Andy Warhol films." The BBC site also has the above picture from Paraphernalia which will be shown in October as part of the museum's 20th anniversary celebrations. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "Some of the fruits of this project will be shown later this year when fifteen Warhol films that have never been seen by the public will premiere Oct. 17 at Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland. The event, “Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films,” will feature live musical performances by Tom Verlaine, Martin Rev, Dean Wareham, Eleanor Friedberger and Bradford Cox."

Fourth volume of the Warhol catalogue raisonne due in September 2014
The fourth volume of the Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonne covering paintings and sculpture from late 1974-1976 will be published in September 2014. I can't rate the previous volumes of the Warhol cat. rais. high enough. Cataloging Warhol's prodigious output in a clear and concise manner is a major achievement. Given that both Sally King-Nero and Neil Printz have edited the fourth volume, it is bound to be as exciting and informative as the previous volumes they worked on. If you want to know Andy Warhol, read the catalogue raisonné. In the process of cataloguing his work, the authors have also created one of the most dependable and well-researched biographies of the artist. Highly recommended. (Amazon is offering a 32% discount on pre-orders of the fourth volume here.)
Andy Warhol: The Complete Commissioned Magazine Work
