After Utopia
After Utopia: Revisiting the Ideal in Asian Contemporary Art. In naming his fictional island 'Utopia', writer Thomas More conjoined the Greek words for 'good place' and 'no place' - a reminder that the idealised society he conjured was fundamentally phantasmal. Yet, the search and yearning for Utopia is a ceaseless endeavour. Predicated on a sense that the world is not enough, utopian principles and models of worlds have been perpetually re-imagined, and continue to haunt our consciousness through the centuries. Drawing mainly from the Singapore Art Museum's permanent collection, as well as artists' collections and new commissions, the exhibition After Utopia sought to ask where and how we have located these expressions of both our innermost yearnings as well as our contemporary realities. This fully illustrated catalogue features critical essays as well as artwork captions by the curators of After Utopia: Revisiting the Ideal in Asian Contemporary Art.
