Wikicliki: Collecting Habits on an Earth Filled with Smartphones
Can the museum engage artists in a discussion about what it means to collect their works? Wikicliki explores this question through a survey of six artists whose modes of working provide unique but interrelated entry points into a range of issues confronting contemporary practitioners in Singapore today. This exhibition takes its cue from the newer modes of creating and presenting art showcased here, gleaning strategies necessary for the collection of contemporary art today. The six artists featured in this exhibition exemplify this new development in contemporary art referred to as the “aggregate,” a qualitative approach to collecting, organising and interpreting the frenzied array of images
and data that increasingly govern our everyday lives.
