Proposals for Novel Ways of Being

Mon Jul 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

What do you get when the National Gallery Singapore and the Singapore Art Museum join forces with 10 other local art institutions and independent art spaces and collectives? You get Proposals for Novel Ways of Being, a series of exhibitions and programmes, both physical and online, that feature the works of over 170 local artists and cultural workers.

This is a united response by the visual arts community to the changes brought about by COVID-19, giving audiences a wide range of art experiences that explore new ways of living in a world irrevocably changed by this pandemic, and imagine new possibilities for the future.

What to look forward to? Coda Culture​’​s exhibition, which brings together artists who produce works using found objects; National Gallery Singapore​’​s range of works by a diverse group of emerging contemporary artists, which embody poetic contemplation; National Museum of Singapore​’​s series of digital works created in collaboration with artists and creatives, which respond to the pandemic; NTU CCA Singapore​’​s showcase of experimental works by artists who engage with sound, bodily movements and performances; Singapore Art Museum’s presentation of contemporary artworks that reflect on the passage of time and various acts of care-taking; and soft/WALL/studs​’ suite of interconnected activities and projects that navigate the themes of (dis)repair, maintenance, and cultivation by artists and curators, presented on digital platforms and at their physical site.

Exhibitions and programmes for Proposals for Novel Ways of Being ​will open between August 2020 and February 2021. More information about the Programme Partners and their respective projects will be made available soon.
