Basquiat by Makos
Spirit Art Space
Basquiat was a very interesting, soft-spoken, young African-American artist. The picture
that I have of Basquiat holding the globe: it’s no accidet that he’s holding Africa in the
picture because in many ways, he felt like he was the token black artist. He understood that
he was the black artist that everybody wanted but he wasn’t sure if they wanted him or his

Andy in Nature
Forest Hall / Milford
This exhibit is Warhol away from the Factory, away from New York, enjoying a restorative and deep engagement with the natural environment, at the beach, in the woods and in the Colora-do mountains. The exhibit challenges the caricatured image of the commercial, caracturized And Warhol as a plastic figure obsessed with consumerism, advertising and shallow society.
In this work a more gentle Warhol emerges. He is seen relaxing at Eothen, his Montauk, Long Is-land, seaside home; enjoying Central Park where he found tranquility in the middle of Manhattan’s madness; and skiing on the slopes and through the forestss in the Colorado mountains. Warhol’s connection to nature, as surprising and unexpected as some may find it, ultimately led him to be-queath his multi-million dollar Montauk property to The Nature Conservancy, which established a preserve and visual arts program in his honor.

A New Yorker’s Perspective Photography by Christopher Makos
Amerikahaus / Munchen
The 25 giclee prints in this exhibition document the 1980s in America and Germany, particularly the generation of New York artists and musicians who came to fame then. Makos had a column in Warhol’s magazine Interview, where many of these images first appeared. Most of the Berlin images were taken during Makos’ and Warhol’s trips to Germany during this period. These Makos images reflect the very rich cultural texture of this period on both sides of the Atlantic

Photographs by Christopher Makos
An American Embassy Residence / Berlin
“My exhibit in Berlin is a salute to the ongoing global struggle for human rights and freedom in the face of repression, intolerance and hatred. As an artist, an American and a gay person, I know that 75 years ago, showing my work in Berlin could have resulted in my arrest and the pictures getting burned. Sadly, in some parts of the world, that could still happen today.

Lévy Gorvy / New York
Lévy Gorvy is delighted to present Warhol Women, the first exhibition to fully explore Andy Warhol’s career-long celebration of womanhood and femininity, from his iconic images of film stars and self- proclaimed Factory “superstars,” to his celebrity and society portraits, and to his examination of gender in the Ladies and Gentlemen series.
Following the success of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s recent Warhol retrospective, Warhol Women will similarly demonstrate the artist’s extraordinary prescience in a very contemporary and potent context. No American artist has better understood the immense power of images to shape society. Warhol foresaw the democratization of celebrity and the advent of social media, just as he identified and characterized what constitutes an icon. He grasped the relationship between mass marketing and the ways in which women have been objectified and sanctified in consumer culture

The Travelers Diary
Today Art Musuem / Beijing
In 1980s, China opened up its economy. More tourists got the chance to visit China, and there
were lots of internationally acclaimed artists among them. These artists observed the social
changes of China with their own perspectives, leaving precious records and unfolding unique
narratives. Meanwhile, the openness of economy and culture also accelerates the process of
urbanization. With the increasing flow of human capitals and ever-changing city scenes, everyone
is on the move and feels out of place now and then.
