The IMPART Collectors’ Show 2019 spotlights visually arresting works of Asian contemporary art from Singapore-based collections. The exhibition, “Fabulous Monsters”, demonstrates the depth of engagement and risk-taking among private collectors based in Singapore.
In times of conflict and uncertainty, one of the responses of contemporary artists has been a retreat from the horrors of our social-political realities into an inner world of dreams. Yet this trajectory is no simple escape from life. The dream-like worlds created by contemporary artists are ways in which the rich repertoire of visual iconography in Asia are cleverly deployed to critique the current social-political fractures in oblique and suggestive ways beyond polemical positions.
Organised by Art Outreach with curatorial advisor and jury chair of the IMPART awards, Tan Boon Hui, Vice President of Global Arts & Cultural Programs and Director of Asia Society Museum. Supported by ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands.
