Curated by artist Guo-Liang Tan, this exhibition brings together works by ten Singaporean artists to explore ideas of liveliness and questions of form, in relation to abstraction as a mode of engaging with different aspects of being.
With a selection of prints by the late Singaporean-British artist Kim Lim acting as points of reference throughout the exhibition, works by past STPI collaborators Genevieve Chua, Han Sai Por, Jane Lee and Suzann Victor are brought into dialogue with works in a range of media by local artists Zul Mahmod, Sherman Sam, Jeremy Sharma, Guo-Liang Tan and Ian Woo.
Proposals for Novel Ways of Being is an initiative spearheaded by National Gallery Singapore and Singapore Art Museum, in a bid to support the local art community by bridging institutions, independent art spaces, curators and artists based in Singapore. The project will span an exhibition and related programming in response to how life has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how we might move forward from it.
