The World Beyond
November 1, 2023 - January 2, 2024Free
This exhibition presents celebratory works from four artists from different regions. Their 15 exquisite artworks each has an illuminating story that promises to captivate.
Miao Yao Sheng’s oil paintings capture festive scenes of ethnic minority peoples from Guizhou Province. Similarly, Ma Pak Loong’s sketches immortalise commemorative buildings in cities across Asia and Europe.
In contrast, Chua Zin Yan expresses celebration through uplifting collages, crafted during the pandemic lockdown. Meanwhile, Harshita Agarwal’s interactive puzzle prints link the ephemeral nature of festivities to an iconic building that will soon disappear.
The artists each hail from a culturally connected region, and they paint a rich palette of emotions, traditions, and environments. Collectively, these works emphasize thriving communities and celebrate a vibrant and inclusive way of living.
The World Beyond is on show at OCBC Wisma Atria from 1 November 2023 to 2 January 2024.
