Clic Gallery East Hampton is proud to present the summer show CHRISTOPHER MAKOS POLAROIDS. The show will be on view beginning August 3rd, 2010 at Clic Gallery, 23 Newtown Lane in East Hampton. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, August 7th from 6 to 8 pm. Makos will be at the opening reception to sign copies of the accompanying photobook, CHRISTOPHER MAKOS POLAROIDS (published by Photology), which features an introduction by Calvin Klein. 

CHRISTOPHER MAKOS was a seminal figure in the 1980s New York art scene, and his photographs have been published in Interview, Rolling Stone, Esquire and New York Magazine. Makos was a close friend and frequent collaborator of ANDY WARHOL, and is the author of WARHOL/MAKOS IN CONTEXT, ANDY IN CHINA, and the upcoming LADY WARHOL. The Clic exhibit is a series of vintage 24 SX-70 Polaroids snapped by Makos in the late 70s to the early 80s. The beautiful, dreamy, colorful shots--of friends and lovers, of interesting still lives, and even celebrities like Debbie Harry, John Kennedy, Jr. and Warhol himself-- are the perfect reminder of the recklessly happy spirit of the time. In his introduction to the book, CALVIN KLEIN writes "What I love about Christopher's Polaroids is that they're a potent relic of a very specific era...what a time of incredible energy and excess! People were out all night, Studio 54 was packed, New York was where it was all happening and going out was frenetic, exciting and very, very fun. In many ways, although this may seem like a contradiction, it was also a time of greater innocence, and that's what these pictures capture."
