INTERVIEW Magazine and The Andy Warhol Museum are proud to present artist Andy Warholâ€™s never-before-seen film, â€œSan Diego Surf,â€ during Art Basel 2011, with special thanks to MAYBACH. A portion of the 90-minute film will be screened at an exclusive VIP party held on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2011 from 9:30 p.m. to midnight at The Standard Spa. The event will feature specialty cocktails courtesy of (BELVEDERE)RED Special Edition to celebrate World AIDS Day and Perrier, as well as the characteristic element of surprise that has come to be expected at the publicationâ€™s legendary Art Basel parties.
INTERVIEW, nicknamed â€œThe Crystal Ball Of Pop,â€ was founded in late 1969 by Andy Warhol and developed during the heyday of 1970s club culture. The magazine features intimate conversations between some of the world’s biggest celebrities, artists, musicians and creative thinkers. In celebration of the filmâ€™s arrival 44 years after it was captured on 16mm, the Dec/Jan issue of INTERVIEW features an oral narrative by film participants, Taylor Mead, Viva and Paul Morrissey as told by INTERVIEWâ€™S editor at large, Christopher Bollen.
Andy Warhol is widely regarded as the most important artist of the second half of the 20th century, and he brought the vision of a successful artist to his filmmaking activities. â€œSan Diego Surfâ€ was shot in May, 1968, filmed with two cameras manned by Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey. One of the last films in which Warhol had direct involvement, â€œSan Diego Surfâ€ was the first film he made in California since the early â€œTarzan and Jane Regained, Sort Ofâ€¦â€ in 1963. It is not in distribution anywhere, and so is an unreleased Warhol film which has never been seen.
