Tropical in Singapore

by Alain Chivilò


Announcement exhibition from 18 November 2023 until  24 March 2024.

Tropical Stories from Southeast Asia and Latin America, is the first museum exhibition to compare different approaches in artistic expressions inside Asia and South America, united by their struggles against colonialism. At the National Gallery Singapore, Southeast Asia and Latin America are connected in more than 200 works among drawings, paintings, performances, sculptures and sensorial installations.  

Seventy renowned artists from two continents such as Patrick Ng Kah Onn, Diego Rivera, David Medalla, Frida Kahlo, Emiria Sunassa, Hélio Oiticica, Latiff Mohidin, Tarsila do Amaral, Paul Gauguin, Tan Oe Pang.

In designs created and conceived for the exhibition, the art of two apparently distant geographical areas finds solidarity in independence and original artistic concepts.
