This event has ended.

Clic Gallery and Christiane Celle present the US debut of The Hilton Brothers' acclaimed exhibition "Andy Dandy." On Tuesday, September 14, Interview Magazine & Seven for All Mankind Jeans will host an exclusive opening reception from 6 to 8 pm. 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.

"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.
