The Body as a Dream: A Singapore Art Story is a new thematic exhibition curated by Vivyan YeoFeaturing works from nine modern and contemporary Singaporean artists spanning 1965, the year of Singapore’s national independence, to pieces created contemporaneously, the exhibition traces depictions of the human body as a visual marker of perceived identity throughout time.

Our selection juxtaposes works from significant figures in modern Singapore art including Cheong Soo PiengLiu Kang and Teng Nee Cheong, with those from the presently emergent generation of contemporary practitioners Aisha RosliFaris HeizerLenne ChaiRuben PangYanyun Chen and Zulkhairi Zulkiflee. Depictions of the human body thread through the exhibits and the audience is invited to find connections between the artists’ sensibilities and reveal a shift in generational concerns from Singapore’s post-independence era to the present times.
