Art can bring new perspectives to bear on how we view the world and understand different cultures and belief systems.

Bridging Realms presents four exhibitions around Esplanade, featuring newly commissioned painting, video and sculptural installations by Ari Bayuaji (Canada/Indonesia), Mark Chan with Brian Gothong Tan (Singapore), Justin Lee (Singapore) and MESSYMSXI (Singapore). Collectively, the ideas explored in their works offer counterpoints to the status quo, challenging preconceived notions of what constitutes identity, cultural diversity and social responsibility in a progressively borderless world.

The exhibitions invite viewers to contemplate the agency of artist and audience in initiating change and bridging conversations.
