Christopher Makos: The Andy Warhol Era
Izone (vul. Naberezhno-Luhova 8, Kyiv)
The works of world-famous American photographer Christopher Makos will be exhibited in Ukraine for the first time ever. Makos was a close friend of pop artist Andy Warhol, who was of Ukrainian extraction. Thematically, the show can be grouped into two parts: the first reflects bohemian New York in the 1970s and 1980s. The second shows Warhol in the image of his female alter ego. Makos's photos are filled with a genuineness and intimacy that enhance this documentation of an era that saw, in addition to Warhol, creative giants like Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger, John Lennon and many other icons of art and pop culture.
