Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas

4 June 2016 – 28 August 2016

Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas

Featuring commissioned artworks, artist loans and works from the Singapore Art Museum collection, Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas invites visitors into Earth’s watery realms, as seen through the eyes of contemporary artists. Through the centuries, over numerous expeditions, and with ever-increasing sophistication in science and technology, humankind has sailed the seven seas and plunged into the very depths of oceanic trenches. Yet there remains much to be discovered of this alien world.

Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas is where artists delve into the unfathomable depths of the ocean’s mysteries, and also think through the tempests that batter our sails on this journey through life. Riddled with twists and turns, where will our explorations take us? While we seem to know more and more about the world around us, to what extent does it give us insights into human nature? To what ends our endless discoveries?

Imaginarium: Over the Ocean, Under the Sea

14 May 2016 - 28 August 2016
SAM at 8Q

Imaginarium: Over the Ocean, Under the Sea

Delving into the deep, Imaginarium: Over the Ocean, Under the Sea – the sixth edition of SAM’s children-focused annual exhibition – invites adventurers of all ages into the watery realms of our Earth as seen through the eyes of contemporary artists.

A whimsical introduction to the many stories and ideas that surround seascapes, Imaginarium: Over the Ocean, Under the Sea presents tactile and interactive works that encourage discovery through exploration and play. At SAM at 8Q, young people are invited to comb the shores and navigate the deep where they make the acquaintance of mysterious denizens and underwater wonders. We hope that, as protectors of the future, our young visitors will also think about the impact we have on the natural world, and of how, through inventive and wise ideas, we can save our earth and its awe-inspiring oceans.
