Co-curated and presented with Centre Pompidou, Paris, the exhibition reframes the existing paradigm of how modernist painting is understood, and invites us to reconsider how artists working in different global contexts approached modernism and modern art in the 20th century.
The inaugural exhibition at the Singtel Special Exhibitions Gallery will present selections of modern masterworks by artists from Southeast Asia such as Le Pho, Latiff Mohidin, Affandi, Georgette Chen and H.R. Ocampo.as well as important works from the Centre Pompidou collection including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Vassily Kandinsky.
Reframing Modernism will complement the National Gallery Singapore’s permanent exhibitions, to further the understanding of modern art from Singapore and Southeast Asia within a global context. The exhibition will draw upon collections from both the National Gallery Singapore, Centre Pompidou and other private and institutional collections in the region.
