Press Release

The Power Station of Art is pleased to announce our latest exhibition ‘Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal’, opening April 28, 2013.

Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal’ is the largest retrospective of Warhol’s artwork to travel to Asia, spanning his career from the 1940s to 1980s. The exhibition is arranged by decade and features more than 400 paintings, photographs, screen prints, drawings, and sculptures. Iconic works in the exhibition include ‘Campbell’s Soup’ (1961), ‘Silver Liz’ (1963), ‘Jackie’ (1964), ‘Silver Clouds’ (1966), ‘Marilyn Monroe’ (1967) and ‘Self-Portrait’ (1986).

In addition to his renowned output as a painter and printmaker, ’15 Minutes Eternal‘ includes key examples of Warhol’s films – such as ‘Empire’ (1964), his 8-hour portrait of New York’s Empire State Building – and reveals his continuing influence on younger generations of filmmakers and video artists.

The exhibition also gives insights into Warhol’s life and social world through photography and examples of his ‘Time Capsules’ – a serial artwork, spanning a thirty-year period from the early 1960s to his death in 1987, that consists of 612 containers (mainly standard-sized cardboard boxes), which Warhol used to manage the bewildering quantity of material that routinely passed through his life.

The exhibition, sponsored by BNY Mellon and jointly presented by PSA and The Andy Warhol Museum, chronicles the breadth of Warhol’s career and demonstrates the scope of his interests. It is planned to travel to five Asian cities over 27 months, and it’s now in Shanghai. Following Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai, the exhibition will then tour to Beijing, and finally Tokyo in 2014.

“Fascinated by the glitterati, Warhol remains a complex and often misunderstood person 25 years after his death, whose artwork depicting consumer objects such as Heinz ketchup boxes, and paintings of Marilyn Monroe have been imprinted into our collective consciousness,” said Eric Shiner, director of The Warhol.

Shiner added: “We are thrilled that BNY Mellon is bringing the life, work and creative genius of Andy Warhol to cities across Asia. This remarkable and extensive collection celebrates anew someone whose life and work define the concept: fame is fleeting, art is eternal.”

“BNY Mellon’s global commitment to the arts is designed to facilitate access and deeper exploration of art through the communities in which we live and work. We are very proud to be supporting The Andy Warhol Museum and bringing this remarkable body of work to Asia,” said Steve Lackey, chairman of Asia-Pacific, BNY Mellon.

A comprehensive series of education programs will accompany the exhibition and feature silkscreening workshops for K-12 and teachers and extracurricular programs.
