The Think! Contemporary 2018 exhibition is the culmination of a year-long partnership between the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) and five primary schools: CHIJ Our Lady Queen of Peace, Geylang Methodist School (Primary), Haig Girls’ School, Mayflower Primary School and St. Anthony’s Primary School.
Featuring artworks by pupils who were a part of the Think! Contemporary Programme, the exhibition includes themes related to family, community, identity and the environment – responses to the issues and ideas investigated by the artworks featured at SAM.
The Think! Contemporary programme is a multi-visit, museum-based school programme that advocates learning through art at SAM. Integrating school curricula with museum visits, the programme employs artworks from various ongoing and past SAM exhibitions, including Once Upon This Island, Imaginarium: Into the Space of Time and Cinerama: Art and the Moving Image in Southeast Asia, as a primary resource for classroom teaching and learning of Art, Character and Citizenship Education, English, Science and Social Studies.
