Histories of violence. Political silencing. Statelessness. These are some of the words associated with the region’s past—and in some countries, they mark the present still. Since the 1970s, Southeast Asian artists have used their practices to speak truth to power, and engage the public on collective and social issues. Timed to open with Singapore Art Week and available from 11 January – 23 February 2020, the blockbuster exhibition features a sprawling display of 32 historical and newly-commissioned works by 25 artists, and will occupy several sites within and around The Substation.
The exhibition is closed on Mondays and Chinese New Year (24-27 Jan).
