Minimalism: Space. Light. Object.
16 November, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 14 April, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
The National Gallery Singapore and ArtScience Museum are collaborating for the first time to present the region’s first exhibition focusing on Minimalism. Set across the two sites, over 130 works will explore the history and legacy of this groundbreaking art movement.
The exhibition will take a new look at Minimalism’s origins, which has had enormous influence on
contemporary art and design but has been little seen in Southeast Asia. A key aspect is the ongoing engagement of Minimal art with Asian art and spirituality in the work of Asian, American and European artists.
The Gallery’s exhibition will also explore the development of Minimal art and ideas from the 1950s to
the present day, tracing its shift from painting to sculpture and then to spatial installations and
immersive environments. It will feature works by some of the most significant artists of the past
70 years from a variety of countries.
