From A New Yorker's Perspective.
Photography by Christopher Makos.

Exhibition duration: Sunday, July 5, 2020 until Sunday, January 31, 2021.

 

Through his photography, highly acclaimed American photographer Christopher Makos documented the life and career of one of the 20th century’s most significant artists, Andy Warhol. These photographs are a window to a period of extraordinary artistic creativity in New York, the United States, and the world.

The iconic works of Christopher Makos reflect the reach and importance of contemporary American art over the last five decades. His photographs have been shown in museums and galleries around the world.

 

Christopher Makos was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, grew up in California, and moved to New York City after high school. He met Andy Warhol at the Whitney Museum in New York, at the opening of an exhibition of Warhol’s paintings.
