Contemporary art is often a dialogue with the social, economic and cultural issues of the present. PANORAMA offers a wide lens to examine our world, and chart some of the issues pervading contemporary art-making in Asia today – the negotiation over values, social and political change, escalating urbanisation and the subsequent pressures on nature. Drawn entirely from SAM’s contemporary art collection, PANORAMA features 41 artists from 10 Asian countries working in painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, video and installation.
