If you’ve not yet been to the Broad downtown, consider a visit this summer at an installment of the aptly titled Summer Happenings at the Broad. The museum currently features a number of notable exhibits, including Jeff Koons with those picturesque tulips and Michael Jackson and Bubbles; several pieces by Roy Lichtenstein; and of course the focus of last Saturday night, Andy Warhol. It was the Summer Happenings season opener: Warhol’s Icon–an ironically reductive title for a night honoring Nico, the German actress and model famous for being one of Warhol’s superstars and gaining recognition later on for her music career. Performers were scattered across three areas in the museum and all paid tribute to Nico in unique ways, with grandiose displays from Geneva Jacuzzi, Jenny Hval, and others.
