Guest Curation – Fame! I’m Going to Live Forever
A curation of fine prints by Blair Thomson of Addicted Art Gallery, Singapore.
We sing about them, write about them, and watch them on TV – but is fame all it’s cracked up to be?
Is it all:
“I’m gonna make it to heaven,
Light up the sky like a flame (Fame),
I’m gonna live forever,
Baby, remember my name.”
– Fame, Irene Cara, 1980
Or is it more:
“I’m Miss American Dream since I was 17,
Don’t matter if I step on the scene,
Or sneak away to the Philippines,
They still gon’ put pictures of my derriere in the magazine,
You want a piece of me?”
-Piece of Me, Britney Spears, 2007
This curation of photographic prints explores famous faces through the lens.
