    Get ready to step into a world where art, music, and history converge as the Ki Smith Gallery presents Poetry & Pose: Screen Tests by Andy Warhol, a groundbreaking exhibition curated by Greg Pierce, Director of Film & Video at The Warhol Museum. This monumental event promises a mesmerizing journey through rare archival Screen Tests, featuring cultural icons like Edie Sedgwick and Lou Reed, alongside a transformative live public performance and private showcase by internationally acclaimed artist, musician, and designer, KESH.


    KESH will infuse "Poetry & Pose" with twenty-six original artworks including private pieces from the artist’s studio, revealed exclusively for this exhibition, along with an unparalleled live performance. The showcase will offer a glimpse into the contemporary artist’s dynamic long-tenured career through diverse mediums and transport collectors and fans alike into a realm where past and present unite, celebrating artistic excellence and innovation alongside iconic Warhol screen tests. Collectors will have the first opportunity to view and purchase the works during the private opening and performance. The second night, will be open to the public and ticket holders can immerse themselves in the essence of artistic innovation and creativity.


    “It’s an honor to share works from my past and present next to an icon like Andy Warhol - a pioneer of the multi-hyphenates who undoubtedly incorporated the process as part of his art form. As I step into this new chapter I bring relics of my past forth and immerse myself into new works and expressions to live in the moment”. -  KESH
