A busker in the most expensive city in the world, Ringo defies societal expectations and lives life on his own terms. Appreciated by few and ignored by many, he continues to strum tunes from his battered guitar; reveling in the very act of performing. While he realises the hardship of the life he has chosen, he continues to do his job respectfully, leaving his worries and unpleasant memories behind.

Polaroid’s unique qualities inspired artists and photographers, while capturing the imagination of everyone else. In allowing people to capture a shared moment and to memorialise it in an instant, Polaroid was arguably perceived as the social network of its time.

Through a wide range of Polaroid artworks and artefacts, this exhibition offers insight into the story of Polaroid photography, while exploring the impact of instant photography and this social phenomenon of instantaneity on us today.

When: November 10 to March 31
Where: National Museum
Entry: SGD 18
