Reframing Modernism at National Gallery, Singapore

IMG_8955

Good news for art lovers! For the first time in Singapore, visitors at the National Gallery Singapore (NGS) are now able to view artworks from European and South-east Asian artists in the same space. The exhibition is a collaboration between Singapore’s National Gallery and France’s Centre Pompidou. I got the chance to get a glimpse of what it has to offer during the media invite for NGS, Gallery After Hours.

The Reframing Modernism held at the Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery, leads visitors through an artistic-centric experience where they are free to explore and examine connections between different bodies of work based on common approaches, ways of working and conceptual orientations to modernism.
