THE TIM SULLIVAN SHOW
12 Jun 2008 - 17 Jul 2008




Collectors Contemporary is pleased to present the works of conceptual artist Tim Sullivan in his first solo show in Asia.

Sullivan’s photographs are a playful combination of images of popular culture and metaphysical symbols of high culture. The artist has always been concerned with the exploration of the self-critical tendency within modern art. However, the appeal of Sullivan’s art lies in his ingenious ability to translate complex, multi-layered ideas and aesthetic discourses into humorous, seemingly light-hearted visual images. As an intricate visual reference to the nature of modern art, the work of Sullivan provides an intriguing introduction to conceptual art and appropriation.

The Tim Sullivan Show will present, for the first time in Asia, the full edition of his evocative photographs shown at the 2006 California Biennial organised by the Orange County Museum of Art. Collectors Contemporary also offers the art audience in Singapore an exciting opportunity to enjoy the artist’s most recent installation works, specially commissioned for our show.

RUSSELL YOUNG
14 Feb 2008 - 21 Mar 2008




In 2003, Russell Young presented Pig Portraits, a series of silkscreen paintings of Malcolm X, Jane Fonda, Al Pacino, Frank Sinatra and Sid Vicious etc, not in their glamorous moments but in police mugshots. According to Young, his method of working is ‘to search, destroy and create’. Acquiring images of celebrities from police departments, newspaper cuttings or e-bay, he enlarges it up to 5 feet tall, then silkscreens them onto canvas, then washes out the images in faded pink, blue, yellow, black and silver.

To the contrary of Young´s original idea of creating ‘anti-celebrity’ portraits as a reaction to his former career of glamourising people, ‘the glamour in the dark side of crime, fame, sex, drugs and Rock and Roll’ turned out to be even more iconic in its ´undeniably raw beauty.´

Since his sold-out show of Pig Portraits at the Don O’ Melveny Gallery, LA, Young´s works are now being collected by the most discerning collectors worldwide. Most recently, Young created a series of haunting images of screen idols, Marlon Brando and Steve McQueen.

The Asian debut of the artist includes mugshot images from his Pig Portraits series together with his latest works of Marlon Brando and Steve McQueen, without doubt the darkest and most compelling works that he has ever produced.





POP!
18 Dec 2007 - 31 Jan 2008




The ubiquitous imagery of mass culture and its immediate accessibility as subject matter have often obscured the true force of Pop art. Consequently, the provocative aspect of Pop art as an aesthetic discourse has been underestimated by the overemphasis on its subject matter.

The first official exhibition of Collectors Contemporary, POP! explores this aspect of Pop art as agent provocateur. Beyond the empty generalisation such as ‘accessible art’ and ‘user friendly art’, the exhibition re-examines the key notions of modernism that Pop art has challenged; that is, subjectivity, beholder and authorship in particular.

Together with works by early Pop artists of the 1960s such as Peter Blake, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, the showcase also presents works by Gavin Turk, Brian Jones, Russell Young, Ronnie Cutrone and Faile, which offers the art audience in Singapore an exciting opportunity to appreciate the true legacy of Pop art.
