In its latest permanent collection exhibition, After Utopia: Revisiting the Ideal in Asian Contemporary Art, Singapore Art Museum examines humanity’s eternal yearning for a better world. Predicated on a sense that the world is not enough, utopian principles and models of worlds have been perpetually re-imagined, and continue to haunt our consciousness through the centuries. Comprising iconic works of Southeast Asian and Asian contemporary art drawn from SAM’s permanent collection, artists’ collections and new commissions, After Utopia seeks to ask where and how we have located these expressions of both our innermost yearnings as well as our contemporary realities, through 20 artworks by 18 artists and artists’ collectives from Singapore and around the region. Curated by SAM curators Tan Siuli and Louis Ho, After Utopia takes place from 1 May to 18 October 2015. Artists featured in After Utopia
