Think! Contemporary Exhibition 2017

6 October – 29 October 2017
SAM at 8Q (Level 3)

The Think! Contemporary Exhibition 2017 is a culmination of the students’ involvement in the Think! Contemporary Programme. The Think! Contemporary Programme is a multi-visit, museum-based school programme that advocates learning through art at the Singapore Art Museum. Integrating school curricula with museum visits, the programme employs artworks from SAM’s Learning Gallery: Once Upon This Island as primary resource for classroom teaching and learning of English, Art, Social Studies and Character and Citizenship Education. In an extension of the programme, visits to SAM’s Imaginarium: To The Ends Of The Earth have also been integrated with the learning of Art and Science.

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 relate to identity, family, home and the environment, which are responses to the issues and ideas investigated by artworks at SAM.

Human Archive Project by Nicola Anthony

6 October – 29 October 2017
SAM at 8Q (Level 1)

Revealing the inner worlds of people from different walks of life through stories gathered from the community, this two-part presentation by artist Nicola Anthony explores the human condition and threads of commonalities despite our differences.

The Human Archive Project focuses on disenfranchised communities and human stories in Singapore. Nicola's work is inspired by the inmates of Changi Women’s Prison, patients at the NUH Department of Paediatrics, families dealing with addiction, the elderly community, and members of the general public, who are invited to contribute stories about themselves at www.humanarchiveproject.com

The Human Archive Project provides a glimpse into lives of others, especially the disenfranchised voices in our society whose stories we do not hear very often.

7 October – 22 October 2017
SAM at 8Q

Singapore Art Museum is proud to announce its eighth year of partnership with the Yellow Ribbon Project. Titled For Better Endings and New Beginnings, this year’s Yellow Ribbon Community Art Exhibition 2017 showcases individual and collaborative artworks by 25 male and 17 female inmates who were guided by artist-mentors Barry Yeow, Kim Whye Kee, and Nicola Anthony.

Highlighting the inmate’s rehabilitative journey through art making, the works in Yellow Ribbon Community Art Exhibition 2017: For Better Endings and New Beginnings were seeded from the themes of ‘love’, ‘hope’, ‘optimism’, ‘reflection’, and ‘tomorrow’.
