MAM Research 008: Suddenly Turning Visible - Art and Architecture in Southeast Asia (1969-1989) Related Program
Conducted in English
We are pleased to welcome Seng Yu Jin, Senior Curator of the National Gallery Singapore (the Gallery), who is also co-curator of MAM Research 008: Suddenly Turning Visible - Art and Architecture in Southeast Asia (1969-1989). Together with Seng, we will discuss how the exhibition Suddenly Turning Visible: Art and Architecture in Southeast Asia (1969-1989) in 2019 at the Gallery and its subsequently traveling exhibition MAM Research 008 were organized during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the curatorial differences between the two.
The later part of the talk will focus on three works currently on view at MAM Research 008: Raymundo Albano’s Step on the Sand and Make Footprints (1974); Anthony Poon’s B2-B Fre Waves (1979); and Apinan Poshyananda’s How to Explain Art to a Bangkok Cock (1985), while introducing materials uncovered in the course of researching on this exhibition. This program offers entry points into understanding the histories of art institutions, exhibitions and experimental artistic practices in Southeast Asia.
