There’s nothing to do in Singapore! If this line sounds familiar, I have just the thing for you — Singapore Art Museum (SAM) @ Tanjong Pagar Distripark. From now till 24 September 2023, you’ll be able to visit these three new contemporary art exhibitions by local and international artists. The best part? They’re free for all Singaporeans and PRs!
Perhaps the most striking and interactive exhibition is the internationally-renowned artist’s landmark video installation that connects audiences to the virtual world, Hito Steyerl: Factory of the Sun. It actually debuted at the 2015 Venice Biennale, so you know it’s defo the real deal.
Sit back, relax, and get ready for a wild ride on one of the chairs — you’ll find that the distinctions between truth and fiction dissolve in a montage of various YouTube videos on the screen. It doesn’t end there, because the glowing grid that surrounds viewers is bound to make you feel like you’re connected to the virtual world. Trippy.
In Lila: Unending Play By Jane Lee, you’ll go on to explore Lee’s world and her playful process of creating and presenting her works — think space, light, reflection, and shadows (the perfect time to show off your artsy side). With exhibitions like Hollow and Empty, Fetish, In Praise of Darkness, and more, prepare to be utterly wowed.
Apart from these two artists, visitors will also be treated to SAM Contemporaries, a biennial project that features different artists and art collectives. This year, you’ll find Singapore-based artists like Priyageetha Dia, Yeyoon Avis Ann, Khairulddin Wahab, and more!
There’ll be plenty of IG-worthy instalments and thought-provoking art encounters with themes like identity, history, and landscapes — making it the perfect place to show your date just how cultured you are, if I may.
