Andy Warhol in China

Images of Andy Warhol in Beijing from photographer Christopher Makos

Hosted by That's Shanghai magazine to coincide with the Power Station of Art's 15 Minutes Eternal exhibition, photographer Christopher Makos exhibits over 40 images of the pop art master from New York in the '70s and '80s and during his 1982 Beijing trip. 

The American photographer spent most of the 1970s and 1980s as part of The Factory scene, and documented Andy Warhol during this time for his books Lady Warhol, and Warhol in China (which should be available to buy during the show).

The images above are a selection of the photos that will be displayed during the exhibition, some of which are still for sale (from a hefty 15,000RMB).

Warhol in China is at ASC Wine Gallery, 41 Hengshan Lu, near Wulumuqi Lu, from Friday 14-Tuesday 18 June. See full event details

The opening party is from 6pm on Friday 14 June.
