Clear Your Calendar: It’s Taylor Mead Week

This week, you can admire the many facets of the Warhol superstar whose Ludlow Street apartment of 32 years is the subject of the 2005 documentary “Excavating Taylor Mead.”

The week begins with Mr. Mead showing off his usual poetic erudition at his regular Monday night readings at The Bowery Poetry Club.

On Thursday, Mr. Mead’s painterly skills will be on display at an opening at Churner and Churner Gallery. The show will feature new drawings from his “Fairy Tale Poem” series, which appeared in the 2006 Whitney Biennial, along with paintings including his portraits of Warhol and Garbo. Be on the lookout for the vestiges of Warhol superstars as Mr. Mead adds to the opening festivities with a reading at 7 p.m.

On Saturday, close out your Taylor Mead week by viewing several of the films that earned him a spot in the pantheon of underground film stars. Churner and Churner will screen Andy Warhol films featuring Mr. Mead, including “Lonesome Cowboys” and the rarely seen “Taylor Mead’s Ass,” along with several of the actor’s home movies. The films will be followed by a Q & A.
