00:15 Superstar

“In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” Andy Warhol (1968)

In our celebrity driven era, Warhol’s prediction has come true. Reality television programs, Youtube and Malaysian Idol ensure that everyone can have a shot at fame. It’s worth stepping back to examine what society’s obsession with celebrity says about ourselves.

00:15 Superstar is an exploration of hype and the consequences of orienting our collective energy and passion into a glossy image alone. Can that collective force be redirected away from escapism and towards creating a better world?

Expect to see amazing works from talented artists such as Bayu Utomo Radjikin, Abdul Multhalib Musa, Jalaini Abu Hassan, Choy Chun Wei, Eric Chan and many more.You can also enjoy a curator’s talk on 19th May at Rimbun Dahan at 3:00pm, but call us early as seats are limited.

Please call River Foo at +603-7803 3772 ext 6314 or e-mail rfoo@wwf.org.my for more information on the exhibition, to reserve a seat at the talk and to organise a corporate event at Rimbun Dahan.
