Singapore Art Museum Presents The Collectors Show : Weight of History Curator Tour

The Collectors Show is one of the most anticipated shows on the arts calendar and continues to present compelling contemporary art works from private collections in Asia. The often technically astounding, and conceptually complex installations, sculptures and objects in the exhibition defy conventional expectations of private art collections as being merely showpieces to be hung on walls. Curated and independently organised by SAM, The Collectors Show celebrates the spirit of adventure and inquiry into the world of private art collectors and their extensive collections. This edition of The Collectors Show features a spectrum of more than 20 works that show how artists perceive, and re-conceive the multiple facets of history in the Asia-Pacific region. The knowledge, narratives and records of the past, as represented in the art works, range from the personal to the social, the spiritual to the art-historical. Weight of History examines how artists engage with, and evaluate, local traditions and culture, translating them into masterpieces which display the interconnected relationship between past and present in our increasingly globalised societies. Curator Tour Now into its third year, The Collectors Show continues to present compelling works of contemporary art from private collections around Asia, unveiled to the public for the first time at SAM. This edition features a spectrum of works that show how artists perceive, and re-conceive the multiple facets of history in contemporary Asia, ranging from the personal to the social, the spiritual to the art historical. SAM curator, Michelle Ho, examines how the past has shaped and continues to shape present day societies through art.
