This exhibition explores Singapore's rapid development and unique cultural evolution

Four artists from around the world are being brought together for 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art's new exhibition all about Singapore's past and future. 

Kolkata-based Rathin Barman's 'Home, and a home' was commissioned for the Singapore Biennale in 2016, and is a welded steel and brass sculpture, modelled on the façade of a colonial shopfront building in Singapore’s Little India district. 

Sydney-based, Singapore-born Jessica Bradford is showing works from her ongoing project on Haw Par Villa, a Chinese cultural park in Singapore formerly known as Tiger Balm Garden. She's showing video as well as sculpture.

London-based, Singapore-born Erika Tan is showing work in Australia for the first time. Her film 'Repatriating The Object With No Shadow: Along, Against, Within and Through' takes the viewer through an 'A to Z' posing significant historical and cultural questions.

Singapore artist Moses Tan's 'Memorial for Boogie Street' uses drawing, sculpture, audio and virtual reality to explore forgotten and censored queer histories of Singapore.
