Warhol’s Films Exhibited in Hong Kong

Osage Art Foundation

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Andy Warhol’s passing, the Hong Kong-based Osage Art Foundation (5/F, Kian Dai Industrial Building, Hung To Road, Kwun Tong; 852/2793-4817) is exhibiting a series of moving images by the prolific artist. The exhibition, entitled Hello It’s Me, Goodbye, is overseen by artist Yason Banal and Geralyn Huxley, curator of film and video at Pittsburgh-based Andy Warhol Museum, and will feature the gamut of Warhol’s film form—from the conceptual portraiture of his screen tests to structuralist pieces Chelsea Girls, Sleep, and Empire. Between 1963, when he began using a camera, and his death in 1987, Warhol made almost 650 films documenting the lives of his inner circle and sundry hangers-on. Expect to see a screen test for Bob Dylan, Susan Sontag, and German-born chanteuse Nico (see still above), who collaborated with the Velvet Underground on their eponymous 1967 debut, which is as well-known for Warhol’s album art as it is for the provocative songwriting.

Until February 14. Opens daily 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. (except public holidays).
