The event was put together by a London collector, Neil Bookatz, a long term supporter of Variety and KIWI Arts Group. The exclusive charity evening was an intimate gathering of guests who previewed the exhibition. Among the guests were Mike Huter, CEO of KIWI Arts Group along with Neil Bookatz, Variety’s current Chief Barker Jason Lewis and Pamela Sinclair, Variety’s Chief Barker for 2016.

The month long pop up exhibition is featuring over 20 black and white and colour photographs of Andy Warhol that until recently had laid hidden in a dusty box. This is the first time the collection has ever been exhibited in the UK since its unveiling in Miami Beach during Art Basel in 2010.

Visiting the exhibition provides a rare opportunity to view the photographs and purchase (starting from £2,000) the limited edition gelatin silver and colour prints from the collection, with a substantial portion of the proceeds going to the charity.
