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, NUH kids, 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.

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’.

Cinerama: Art and the Moving Image in Southeast Asia

17 November 2017 – 18 March 2018
SAM at 8Q

Cinerama brings together 10 artists and collectives from across Southeast Asia who work through the medium of the moving image. Spanning hand-drawn animation to immersive video installations, the works explore the history of the genre, its current-day expressions, and potential for the future.

While offering opportunities to reminisce the golden age of movie-making, the exhibition also dissects the filmic picture to uncover its constituents and constructions as well. In doing so, it retraces developments from the very first moving images, to the expanded cinema experience of today.

The range of works here examine issues of individual and collective memory, identity and politics, closely mirroring contemporary ways of being, and offering insights into what the future of cinema, video, and the realm of moving images, may come to be.
