Suddenly Turning Visible: Art and Architecture in Southeast Asia (1969–1989)
Suddenly Turning Visible: Art and Architecture in Southeast Asia (1969–1989) illuminates the lesser-known links between art and architecture, and the role of institutions in Southeast Asia. It reflects the rapid modernisation of the region during this period, a time when artists and architects articulated new approaches that freely reinvented international art movements such as abstraction, realism and conceptual art in dialogue with folk and vernacular traditions across Southeast Asia. The exhibition traces this story through three influential art institutions located in Manila, Bangkok and Singapore, presenting artworks from the period alongside archives, and newly commissioned and restaged artworks.
