SAM Exhibition: Can Everybody See My Screen?
9 September - 11 December
As the title suggests, the space of the screen is central to the exhibition, acting as a portal through which experiences of the world are mediated by technology. Drawing from works created post- 2000, Can Everybody See My Screen? examines the various ways in which artistic practices engage with an increasingly digitalised world and expounds on humanity’s shared encounters with evolving technology.
Building upon a thematic selection, the exhibition will feature the works of local and regional artists from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and China. Seven of the 12 works presented are from SAM’s collection. These works are brought into dialogue with four commissions and one loan, presenting shifting perceptions of technology’s impact on contemporary life.
