Sensorium 360°
31 Jul 2014 - 19 Oct 2014
Singapore Art Museum

Sensorium 360° is an exhibition of Southeast Asian and Asian contemporary art that calls upon the complexity of the human senses, and explores how sensory experiences locate us in understanding the world and knowing the self. While the five senses of sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell are the most commonly known, other identified senses include the ability to detect movement, pain, balance and even time. Oft taken for granted, these physiological capacities are indispensable in enabling us to apprehend the world within and without – taking in its pleasures and pains, even as we absorb data and information.

Spanning the fields of art, phenomenology, philosophy and cognitive psychology, Sensorium 360° is a visual art exhibition that moves beyond vision to 'see' the world through the other senses, and to experience it in-the-round.

Medium at Large
25 Apr 2014 - 26 Apr 2015
Singapore Art Museum

Medium at Large explores the idea of medium in contemporary art, probing some of the most fundamental and pressing questions of art - its making, and also our experience, encounter and understanding of it. The year-long exhibition at Singapore Art Museum (SAM) revels in the rich expanse of materials that contemporary artworks can be made of, and from, with artwork media ranging from oil paint to rattan, human hair, live bullet shells, as well as 'dematerialised' media like sound and language. The exhibition also scrutinizes the very 'slipperiness' of medium as once-stable categories and genres begin to slide into one another. Medium at Large draws largely from our permanent collection, and also includes loans and commissions from Singaporean, Southeast Asian, and Asian artists. Across 32 artworks, the exhibition probes and ponders the fluid - if ever-elusive - nature of art: of art's medium, at large.
