Warhol In London: Behind the Lens of William John Kennedy
KIWI Arts Group is pleased to present Warhol In London: Behind the Lens of William John Kennedy, a month long pop-up exhibition on Chiltern Street at the A&D Gallery Space.
Featuring over 20 black & white and colour photographs of Andy Warhol that until recently had laid hidden in a dusty box. It will be the first time the collection has ever been exhibited in the United Kingdom since it's unveiling in Miami Beach during Art Basel in 2010.
A few short years ago American photographer William John Kennedy brushed off a long forgotten dusty box headed for the rubbish bin after it lay in storage for nearly five decades. That rescued box would later reveal a collection of extraordinary works of art Kennedy created with the help of Andy Warhol in a series of photo sessions on the cusp of his meteoric rise to fame. The recovered archive of Kennedy's negatives has been transformed into a collection of limited edition colour prints and gelatin silver photographs capturing the most important images Warhol ever created. The photographs have now become part of several important public and private collections around the world, with one standing 4 meters tall as the focal point of The Andy Warhol Museum.
The exhibition was put together by a London collector and KIWI Arts Group—the publisher of the photographs from the Kennedy archive. It provides a rare opportunity to view the photographs and purchase (starting at £2000) the limited edition gelatin silver and color prints from the collection, with a substantial portion of the proceeds going to charity.
