The inaugural exhibition seamlessly intertwines Southeast Asia and Latin America through a meticulous display of over 200 masterpieces spanning paintings, sculptures, drawings, performances, and sensorial installations. Against the historical canvas, witness how artists from both regions, much like Capricorns, challenged conventions with a determined spirit, forging alliances and reclaiming their esteemed place in the grand narrative of art.
Tropical: Stories from Southeast Asia and Latin America runs from 18 November 2023 to 24 March 2024 at the National Gallery Singapore, Singapore 178957. Tickets are priced at $15 for Singaporeans and PRs.
