PAP SPEARS brings together nine emerging artists Sue Dodd, Mari Hirata, Anthony Lister, Daniel McKewen, Alasdair Macintyre, Sebastian Moody, Archie Moore, David Spooner and Jemima Wyman, and is curated by Mariam Arcilla. The theme focuses on the sell-ability of modern day celebrities in a society where fame and notoriety equates to success, and being worshipped. PAP SPEARS is a mish-mash of Britney Spear’s surname – Britney being the prime example of a modern-day scandalous star – and the term ‘pap,’ which celebrities use to call the paparazzi (photographers who pursue and snap lucrative images of celebrities for public consumption).
