Clic Gallery and Christiane Celle are proud to present the US debut of the HILTON BROTHERS' acclaimed exhibition ANDY DANDY. The show will run from September 9 to October 3, 2010 at Clic Gallery, 255 Centre Street in Soho, New York. There will be an exclusive opening reception on Tuesday, September 14, from 6 to 8 pm in the evening. The reception will also be the official launch of the book LADY WARHOL, published by La Fabrica Madrid .
THE HILTON BROTHERS are longtime friends and collaborators CHRISTOPHER MAKOS and PAUL SOLBERG. CHRISTOPHER MAKOS trained under Man Ray in Italy, and his photographs have been published in Interview, Rolling Stone, Esquire and New York Magazine, among others. Makos was a close friend and frequent collaborator with Andy Warhol and is the author of the photobooks WARHOL/MAKOS IN CONTEXT, ANDY IN CHINA, EXHIBITIONISM and CHRISTOPHER MAKOS POLAROIDS ,with text by Calvin Klein. PAUL SOLBERG, called "the most modern photographer in America" by Makos, is the author of BLOOM and MISTAKEN IDENTITY. ANDY DANDY is an unusual art project, combining two series taken years apart: Makos's stark black and white portraits of Andy Warhol exploring his sense of gender self-image, and Solberg's BLOOM series, which are crisp, mesmerizing still lives of flowers. Each Warhol is matched with a flower shot, and the resulting diptychs are witty and unexpected, offering a fresh, surprising look at one of the icons of modern art. An art marriage: Warhol vamps for the camera in a Veronica Lake wig and full makeup as a film noir femme fatale, paired next to an eerily bright photo of a flower in full blossom. ANDY DANDY was previously exhibited at Caxa Madrid's Casa Encendida Foundation, Madrid, the Sebastian Guinness Gallery in Dublin, Ireland, and the Espace Cultural Ample in Barcelona, Spain. This is the US gallery debut.
