Think! Contemporary Exhibition 2016

6 October to 13 November 2016
SAM Gallery 3.7

The Think! Contemporary Programme is a multi-visit, museum-based school programme that advocates learning through art at the Singapore Art Museum (SAM).

Integrating school curriculum with museum visits, the programme employs artworks from SAM’s Learning Gallery: Once Upon This Island as primary resource for the classroom teaching and learning of English, Art, Social Studies and Character and Citizenship Education. Inspired by SAM’s Imaginarium: Over the Ocean, Under the Sea, a school has integrated the teaching and learning of Art and Science with museum visits as an extension of this programme.

The Think Contemporary Exhibition 2016 is a culmination of the students’ involvement in the Think! Contemporary Programme, a partnership between six primary schools and the Singapore Art Museum.

This year’s exhibition features students’ artworks from CHIJ Our Lady Queen of Peace, Fuchun Primary School, Geylang Methodist School (Primary), Haig Girls’ School, Mayflower Primary School and St. Anthony’s Primary School.

Various themes explored in this exhibition include Identity, Family, Home and Heritage, a response to the issues and ideas investigated by the artists featured in the Learning Gallery.

The Think! Contemporary Exhibition 2016 is a parallel project of the Singapore Biennale 2016.
