Christopher Makos taught Andy Warhol how to take photos, snapped shots of Andy, Salvador Dali, Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop, and Maggie Q, and now he's talking to us.
Born in Massachusetts in 1948, he apprenticed with Man Ray, before moving on to work with Andy Warhol. Since then, he's continued to explore the world through his pop-art work. He's published many books of his work, and has collaborated with brands like Absolut.
He'll be doing an interview looking back at his history, sharing stories, and talking about his current projects. It will be conducted by Brian Offenther/DJ B.O, who has done similar events in Shanghai with sax legend Steve Mackay, classic punks The Boys, and new wave great Tex Axile.
The event will also feature art-punk band Round Eye performing as (Pale Blue) Round Eye. They'll do an acoustic tribute to Warhol collaborators The Velvet Underground, poet Ryan Shank doing a tribute to underground NYC, and DJ B.O spinning underground NYC classics.
