Engaging Perspectives: New Art from Singapore present works that engage with multifaceted perspectives about Singapore by a generation of artists born in the 1980s and currently working in Singapore. The nine artists and collectives, who are at differing stages of their careers—from emerging artists to those who have exhibited internationally—examine the diverse but related ways in which they engage with the everyday.
Their works explore the physical structures as well as the invisible structures and networks that govern our everyday lives, the relationship of our increasingly urbanized environments to nature, as well as the systems of meaning making through the creation of images and signs that exists in our society. The exhibition aims to provide new perspectives about the everyday within the context of Singapore, but also how this engagement with the everyday is also invariably an engagement with global perspectives.
The exhibition is organised by the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Singapore and curated by Eugene Tan. Venue supported by JTC Corporation.
