The Singapore Art Museum is hosting “Installation in Progress” an exhibition examining the ideas of exhibitions and exhibition-making. The exhibition explores this theme through the lens of the museum’s own history — from the time of its inception in 1996 as Singapore’s first fully dedicated art museum, to its transformation over the years in the Singapore art scene and the journey it took through the years. The exhibition runs through August 26, 2018.
Exhibitions are core to the life of a museum. “Installation in Progress” takes a closer look at exhibition making from the perspectives of three bodies: the curator, the artist, and the audience.
The Singapore Art Museum has held over 300 exhibitions. “Installation in Progress,” a survey of the 22 glorious years of Singapore Art Museum, charts its exhibition history, presents a new artwork commission from Singaporean artist Michael Lee, and adds an interactive component that lets visitors try out their own exhibition plans.
“Through presentations and representations of a museum’s collection, artwork commissions, adaptations, and loans, each exhibition brings together a kaleidoscope of artistic lenses through which the world can be viewed anew.
Every exhibition also puts its focus on the viewer and the multitude of individuals who work behind the scenes to make the exhibition come to life. Through “Installation in Progress” the museum endeavors to uncover the spirit of creating an exhibition,” the museum says. The exhibition is curated by John Tung, the assistant curator at the Singapore Art Museum.
“Installation in Progress” will run through August 26, 2018, at SAM Curve in the Singapore Art Museum, 71 Bras Basah Road, Singapore 188555.
