Warhol’s iconic portrayal of the Factory scene and ’60s New York

Andy Warhol’s 1966 movie The Chelsea Girls is the iconic document of the Factory scene and 1960s New York. Filmed in part at the Chelsea Hotel with Factory Superstars like Nico, Ondine, Brigid Berlin, Gerard Malanga and Mary Woronov, The Chelsea Girls was Warhol’s first commercially successful film. “In one film alone,” an early reviewer noted, “[Warhol] has sadism, masochism, whipping, transvestites, homos, prostitutes, a homosexual ‘Pope,’ boredom, stunningly beautiful girls, depravity, humor, ‘psychedelics,’ truth, honesty, liars, poseurs....” In honor of the 24th anniversary of The Andy Warhol Museum, the publication of Andy Warhol’s The Chelsea Girls coincides with a major project undertaken by the museum to digitize hundreds of his well-known and never-before-seen films.

The book is an in-depth, deluxe treatment of the film, featuring stills from the newly digitized film, previously unpublished transcripts and archival materials, and expanded information about each of the individual films that comprise The Chelsea Girls. The film’s alternation of sound between the left and right screens is recalled in the publication’s design in which the transcripts are printed directly beneath the corresponding imagery to evoke an authentic experience of the film. Also included are previously unpublished transcriptions of unheard reels. Andy Warhol’s The Chelsea Girls is a beautifully produced document of a legendary movie and a mythic moment.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

W Magazine

Eckhardt Stephanie

From new photos and transcripts found in unheard and unseen reels to a re-creation of the film's split-screen layout, which Warhol first visualized on a napkin, the book offers as good of a glimpse you can get at The Chelsea Girls...

Publisher's Weekly

This companion to Andy Warhol’s 1966 film The Chelsea Girls is a rare treasure: a reference work of great beauty and discerning scholarship.

The Cut

Jane Starr Drinkard

Warhol and his Factory Superstars created cool. Or at least, a dark, glamorous version of it. Warhol’s The Chelsea Girls, a 1966 experimental film captures that cool…

Gayletter

Jimmy Olney

Andy Warhol’s The Chelsea Girls is, in true Warholian fashion, beautiful, glossy and commanding.

Dazed

Sara Rosen

Chelsea Girls still holds up as one of the most creative, innovative, and prescient films of its time.

AnOther Mag

Jack Moss

The visual impact is best celebrated in the newly digitised stills in the book, which seem to best capture Warhol’s mission: to elevate the everyday to the extraordinary, to make the outsider an insider, and a piece of art in the process.

An epic movie-novel: Andy Warhol's The Chelsea Girls

An epic movie-novel: Andy Warhol's The Chelsea Girls

"What is The Chelsea Girls?" Jonas Mekas asked in his September 29, 1966, review in The Village Voice. "It is Warhol's most ambitious work to date. It is also probably his most important work to date. It is an epic movie-novel. During the four hours that the movie lasts a huge gallery of people pass by, a gallery of complex lives, faces, fates… Many strange lives open before our eyes, some of them enacted, some real—but always very real, even when they are fake—since this is the Chelsea Hotel of our fantasy, of our mind. Lovers, dope addicts, pretenders, homosexuals, sad, fragile girls, and hard, tough girls—quiet conversations, doing nothing, telephone conversations, passing the time; social games, drug games, sex games… The film in its complex and overlapping structure, in its simultaneity of lives before our eyes, comes closest to Joyce. Forgive me this sacrilegious comparison—really, this is the first time that I dare mention Joyce in connection with cinema. This is the first time that I see in cinema an interesting solution of narrative techniques that enable cinema to present life in the complexity and richness achieved by modern literature." continue to blog

Only psychedelic if you are stoned watching it… Andy Warhol's The Chelsea Girls

Only psychedelic if you are stoned watching it… Andy Warhol's The Chelsea Girls

Featured image, of Warhol Superstar Nico in reel 12 of Warhol's cinematic split-screen masterpiece, is reproduced from Andy Warhol's The Chelsea Girls, published by D.A.P. and The Andy Warhol Museum. "I am on the screen for an hour, and I prefer one scene to the other," Nico is quoted in the book. "There is a scene where my face is colored with patterns and it's supposed to be, oh, psychedelic.… It is only psychedelic if you are stoned watching it. Otherwise it is a portrait with color added. It is beautiful in a certain way, but it is like a silk screen that Andy has made, except I cannot put it on my wall. It only goes on the walls of cinemas." continue to blog

Lovers, pretenders, homosexuals, lesbians, drug addicts, sad girls, hard girls, tough girls, weak girls, girls…

Lovers, pretenders, homosexuals, lesbians, drug addicts, sad girls, hard girls, tough girls, weak girls, girls…

All hail Andy Warhol's The Chelsea Girls, the first comprehensive treatment of Warhol's masterpiece of avant-garde cinema, just out from D.A.P. and The Andy Warhol Museum. Ingeniously designed by Matsumoto Inc., this glamorous yet scholarly book mirrors the split-screen presentation of the film, but also includes archival materials and transcripts of every reel made in association with the film—many of which have never been seen or heard before (for good reason). "There are lovers, pretenders, homosexuals, lesbians, drug addicts, sad girls, hard girls, tough girls, weak girls, girls," a 1966 press released promised. "There are time passing games, sex games, love games, social games, drug games, game games, games. Some episodes are part fiction, others actuality." We could not be prouder to have co-published this book. Read early reviews in W Magazine and Publishers Weekly. continue to blog

Happy Birthday Andy Warhol, born August 6, 1928

Happy Birthday Andy Warhol, born August 6, 1928

Featured image is reproduced from Andy Warhol's The Chelsea Girls, the first museum monograph on Warhol's history-making, three-hour, split-screen, experimental cinematic masterpiece. In 1966, Roger Ebert wrote, "Warhol has nothing to say and no technique to say it with," while TV Guide issued the surprising: "fascinating, provocative, and hilarious." Perhaps Warhol himself said it best: "Chelsea Girls was the movie that made everyone sit up and notice what we were doing in films (and a lot of times that meant sit up, stand up, and walk out.) Until then the general attitude toward what we did was that it was 'artistic' or 'camp' or 'a put-on' or just plain 'boring.' But after Chelsea Girls, words like degenerate and disturbing and homosexual and druggy and nude and real started being applied to us regularly." continue to blog
