White Space Art Asia proudly presents Vintage Pop, a show that examines the central tenets of the Pop art movement and how it continues to be relevant and resonate with a new generation of artists decades after its introduction. In this dialogue, seriality, repetition, and the eye-hungry references to mainstream popular culture and mass media are visible proofs that the concept of Pop is still pertinent in today’s contemporary art.

Vintage Pop features five contemporary artists stretching across different geographical, cultural, and ideological backgrounds. Five artists from five vastly different countries and life experiences (England, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Singapore) will work with popular imageries and iconographies dating back to the 1960s. Alluding to iconic films, cartoons, videogames and pop music, these artists distort the still deeply entrenched demarcation between “authentic” and “commercial” culture.

Popular culture is ubiquitous but not universal. Its shape and form are defined by the prevailing sentiments and norms of a society. While each of these five artists brings a different postmodern interpretation of Pop art, the shared beliefs of the democratization of art and the use of easily identifiable iconography rooted in vintage pop weaves a global unifying language across time and geographies.

Join us as we celebrate these artists and their inimitable interpretations of Pop art in the contemporary context.
