After Utopia: Revisiting the Ideal in Asian Contemporary Art
The search for Utopia is a ceaseless human endeavour. After Utopia explores how our ideals mirror our innermost yearnings and that gnawing sense that this world and its realities are not enough. Through an exciting partnership with Singapore Art Museum and the OzAsia Festival, Samstag highlights the diverse artistic practices of South East Asia in an exhibition that draws largely from Singapore Art Museum’s permanent collections.
After Utopia features moving image, installation, painting and sculpture from across the region, including work by: Shannon Lee Castleman; Chris Chong Chan Fui; Geraldine Javier; Kamin Lertchaiprasert; Donna Ong; The Propeller Group; and Ian Woo. A Singapore Art Museum exhibition curated by Tan Siuli and Louis Ho, presented in partnership with the Samstag Museum of Art and 2017 OzAsia Festival.
After Utopia runs from 22 September - 1 December 2017. Open Hours: Tuesday to Friday: 10:00am – 5:00pm; Saturday, 2:00pm – 5:00pm.
