SINGAPORE: No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia Exhibition

Currently the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) in Singapore is hosting an exploratory art exhibition entitled No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia. A part of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, the exhibition is curated by June Yap and comprises of 19 works by 16 artists and collectives from 11 countries spanning South and Southeast Asia. A wide range of artworks are presented in various mediums such as painting, photography, sculpture and video and are split into four distinct themes: reflection and encounter, intersections and dualities, diversities and divisions, and the desire for unity and community. Initially presented in 2013 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the exhibition was then shown at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center. The exhibition closes July 20, 2014, so be sure to drop by this week to catch an insight into this vibrant region’s art identity. –Babette Radclyffe-Thomas
