Proposals for Novel Ways of Being: Strange Forms of Life

Guest-curated by Guo-Liang Tan, the exhibition seeks to bring together works by 10 Singaporean artists to explore ideas of ‘liveliness’ and questions of form, in relation to abstraction as a mode of engaging with different aspects of being. It comprises works by past STPI residency artists, as well as other prominent artists whose works deal with the language of abstraction.

Proposals for Novel Ways of Being is an initiative spearheaded by National Gallery Singapore and Singapore Art Museum, in a bid to support the local art community by bridging institutions, independent art spaces, curators and artists based in Singapore. The project will span an exhibition and related programming in response to how life has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how we might move forward from it.
