The eighth edition of Singapore Art Museum’s annual family-friendly contemporary art exhibition returns with Imaginarium: Into the Space of Time. Held from 6 May to 26 August 2018 at SAM at 8Q, the exhibition explores the tales and theories that shape our memories and futures, and examines the concept of time through immersive and interactive artworks by 10 artists and art collectives from around the world.
Artists whose works feature in the exhibition are: Ronald Apriyan (Indonesia), Maarten Baas (the Netherlands), Mayuko Kanazawa (Japan), Lee Mei Ling (Singapore/Taiwan), Lee Xin Li (Singapore), Stéphane Masson (France), Matthew Sia (Singapore), Boedi Widjaja (Indonesia/ Singapore), and art collectives Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey (Australia), and The GedAze Project (The Philippines).
Visitors can look forward to site-specific installations and specially commissioned artworks that come alive through audience interaction, such as Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey’s interactive megaphone installation, Matthew Sia’s immersive Cosmic Grass and Mayuko Kanazawa’s Utsuroi Iroha.
Delving deeper into the concepts explored in the exhibition, there are artist-led tours, poetry reading sessions, various art workshops for children, and daily screenings of award-winning animations and short films at the museum’s cinema, each exploring the concept of time.
A series of Imaginarium: Into the Space of Time programmes will take place throughout the four-month-long exhibition period, where visitors of all ages can further engage with the ideas and concepts explored in the exhibition. These include a special preview tour led by Imaginarium artists, toddler art workshops, tours and workshops specifically tailored for school children, as well as daily screenings of award-winning short films inspired by the concept of time, dreams and imagination about the world.
