|The Singapore Show: Future Proof
|14 January - 15 April 2012
|Singapore Art Museum at 8Q, 222 Queen Street, SAM Front Lawn & The Substation
|Since the birth of contemporary practice in Singapore, signalled by the formation of The Artists Village, 5th Passage and the landmark exhibition, Trimurti, artists here have been exploring various genres of creative work - from sculpture and paintings to performance art, site-specific installations to graphic design and interactive media.
The Singapore Show: Future Proof presents artworks from young artists whose innovative and unique practices have generated attention and accolades in various art circles. Their artistic ventures take place from streets to galleries; their concerns local to geopolitical; their material both found and acquired. With strong, consistent and resilient presence in the local as well as international contemporary art scenes, these motivated youth have enlivened Singapore's art landscape and can be considered to be amongst those to look out for today.
