Marina Bay Sands - Part 2 , Singapore

Singapore [新加坡] • NOVEMBER 2012
The largest collection of iconic works by Andy Warhol is on display at ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands on the 25th anniversary of the artist’s death. The exhibition, sponsored by BNY Mellon and organized by The Andy Warhol Museum in Warhol’s home town of Pittsburgh, chronicles the breadth of Warhol’s career and demonstrates the scope of his interests.

People look at Andy Warhol's Campbells Soup series of prints during a media preview of the exhibition Andy Warhol 15 Minutes Eternal at the ArtScience Museum of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Over 260 works by the iconic pop artist from his early years in the 1940's until his final creations in the 1980's are on display for six months to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his death.

Titled after a quote from the popular artist himself, “In the future, everybody will be world-famous for fifteen minutes”, Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal features over 260 paintings, drawings, sculptures, film, and video of the legendary artist’s works, marking the first time such an extensive collection is exhibited in Singapore. The exhibition is also accompanied by a wide range of associated documents, interactive timelines, photographs, and archival material.
Andrew Warhola (6 August 1928 – 22 February 1987), better known as Andy Warhol, was an American painter, printmaker, and filmmaker. He was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as Pop Art and was renowned for using mass production of popular culture such as advertising, comic books, and brand products, as the basis of his art. 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.

Mr. Nick Dixon, Executive Director, ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands, said, “Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal will show visitors the multiple facets of Andy Warhol’s talents. Art can come in many forms. Andy Warhol showed the world how various mediums and technology can transform everyday items like Campbell’s soup cans and photos into pop art icons. He had an amazing ability to simplify art and make it accessible to the mass public.”

Visitors to the exhibition will journey through four different stages of Andy Warhol’s life, starting from his early artistic years in the 1940’s to his final works in the 1980’s. The exhibition will present an extensive range of important artworks from the various phases of his artistic career.
