Warhol, Pettibone and The Art of Appropriation exhibition in Singapore till May 2012

Collectors Contemporary, a gallery specialising in the exhibition and sale of important works of modern and contemporary art in Singapore, brings two groundbreaking artists,  Andy Warhol and Richard Pettibone, together at Warhol, Pettibone and The Art of Appropriation from March 29th till May 11. The exhibition explores concerns in contemporary art, from notions of originality and consumerism to mass media and celebrity.

46 works of Richard Pettibone will be exhibited together with 27 of Warhol's art works including Electric Chairs of 1976.  Collectors Contemporary is situated at Petro Centre, 5 Jalan Kilang Barat, off Jalan Bukit Merah in Singapore. The elegant environment of 3000 square feet features an extra-high ceiling and manoeuvrable hanging walls. This amorphous exhibition space is primed for a series of breathtaking shows that reflect and explore the artistic issues of the era, affirming the importance of contemporary art and its artists.[1]

It is Andy Warhol year on the small red dot this year as ArtScience Museum also features Andy Warhol : 15 Minutes Eternal Exhibition till August 2012.
