The exhibition, Andy Warhol — Social Circus, is the brainchild of trainee lawyer and art collector Ryan Su, and this is his first show to launch ‘The Ryan Foundation’, which aims to promote arts education and nature conservation seeks. Andy Warhol — Social Circus will feature up to 30 polaroids, and they include the likes of Andy Warhol himself, Bianca Jagger, Andre Leon Talley, Candy Spelling, Diana Vreeland, Tina Chow and Martha Graham.
This is the first time these polaroids have been reunited and exhibited under one roof in Asia, since they were pulled out of Warhol’s Polaroid camera between 1958-1987 and dispersed across the world by various collectors. These polaroids not only demonstrate Warhol’s influence as an artist and society figure, but also inspire his large-scale portraits he is best known for.
Ryan Su, 27, is a trainee lawyer and art collector. He currently sits on the Committee of the Singapore Gardening Society, being its youngest committee member, and on the Board of friends of Art Stage Singapore. He is also an accredited mediator with the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts in New York.
