IMPART Collectors' Show 2019: Fabulous Monsters

The IMPART Collectors' Show features visually arresting works of Asian contemporary art from Singapore-based collections, demonstrating the depth of engagement and risk-taking among private collectors based in Singapore.

In times of conflict and uncertainty, one of the responses of contemporary artists has been a retreat from the horrors of our social-political realities into an inner world of dreams. Yet this trajectory is no simple escape from life. The dream-like worlds created by contemporary artists demonstrates how the rich repertoire of visual iconography in Asia can be deployed to critique current social-political fractures. 

Organised by Art Outreach with curatorial advisor and jury chair of the IMPART awards, Tan Boon Hui who is also the Vice President of Global Arts & Cultural Programs and Director of Asia Society Museum. Supported by ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands.
