Take a look at the inventive ways modern artists respond to today’s social issues and matters. The exhibition showcases 93 pieces of contemporary art by 45 artists from Southeast Asia as well as South Asia. Titled Fracture/Fiction, this exhibition addresses the fractures we face in our society.
At the exhibition, visitors will see an array of installations, paintings, photographs and many more. Each piece tells a story and the descriptions on the walls explain the significance behind each artwork. The curated works covers topics that range from socio-politics, historical and personal stories interpreted by the artists. Many of the pieces are created using ordinary subject matters and transformed into unexpected pieces of art by sheer imagination and creativity. Take note that some of the works are unique and surprising, with juxtapositions of beauty and horror that create jarring images.
