Entang Wiharso at Singapore art Museum:
THE COLLECTORS SHOW: ASIAN CONTEMPORARY ART FROM PRIVATE COLLECTIONS
14th Jan. – 25th Mar. 2012
Entang Wiharso will take part of the group exhibition "The Collectors Show: Asian Contemporary Art from Private Collections" at Singapore Art Museum, Singapore.
The artist has started to collaborate with the gallery since 2007. The last year, after the success of the group exhibitions “South East B(l)ooming. Post Tsunami Art” and “Peasures of Chaos” at our gallery , he had his first European solo exhibition at our main space in Milan.
The artworks exhibited at Chimera are from the Rubell Family Collection and from the private collection of Hugh and Lina Young.
The Collectors Show brings together notable works of Asian contemporary art from private collections around the world. A tribute to the art patrons of today, the exhibition offers an insight into the breadth and remarkable richness of private art col- lections, and the unique and highly personal visions and passions that shape them. Titled Chimera, a deliberately evocative word that references both the mythological hybrid monster and the idea of an illusion, fantasy, or delusion, the exhibition will present contemporary art in all its various and hybrid forms, from painting to sculpture, to new media and interactive multi-media. The works selected eschew conventional spectacle in favour of a reflection on vision and visuality, offering up visually seductive surfaces tinged with undercurrents of anxiety. These artworks remind us of the spectres of our age – questions and issues which continue to haunt us and test our judgement at every turn and corner of our new millennium.
