- Andy Warhol
More than twenty years after his death, Andy Warhol remains one of the most influential figures in contemporary art and culture. He was a leading figure in the Pop Art movement and was known for using media from popular culture such as advertisements and comic books as the inspiration for his works.
From 17 March 2012, over 260 paintings, drawings, sculptures, film, and videos by Andy Warhol will be on display at the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands. Held on the 25th anniversary of the artist’s death, this exhibition marks the first time such an extensive collection is exhibited in Singapore.
Titled after the quote from the popular artist himself, Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal features his masterpieces including Jackie (1964), Marilyn Monroe (1967), Campbell’s Soup (1961), Silver Liz (1963), Time Capsule 51 (1970’s), The Last Supper(1986), and numerous iconic Self-Portraits.
Visitors to the exhibition will journey through four different stages of Warhol’s life, starting from his early artistic years in the 1940’s to his final works in the 1980’s.
A separate space will be dedicated to recreating the Silver Factory, Warhol’s studio in the 60s which was entirely covered with foil. The space will feature costumes for visitors to dress up and be “a star for 15 minutes”, including a photo booth to capture the experience.
During the 70’s, Warhol started creating time capsules containing meaningful items collected from the various periods of his life. Out of the over 600 time capsules Warhol created throughout his lifetime, visitors will be able to view one that contains over 50 magazines and books.
In the 80s, having reached the pinnacle of success in the art world, Warhol ventured into television media with Andy Warhol’s T.V. and Andy Warhol’s Fifteen Minutes, which visitors will be able to watch in this exhibition space.
To cater to young art enthusiasts, a special display for children will be created based on a similar exhibition Andy Warhol did in 1983 at Bruno Bischofberger gallery in Switzerland. Visitors young and old will view art from a child’s perspective – toy paintings will be displayed at a lower eye level.
