Christo­pher Makos: The Andy Warhol Era

Izone (vul. Naberezhno-Luhova 8, Kyiv)

The Ukrainian Week - - CULTURE & ARTS -

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.
