The Collectors Show presents compelling works of contemporary art from private collections in Asia. This third edition of The Collectors Show is titled Weight of History , featuring 23 works that show how artists perceive, and re-conceive the multiple facets of history in the Asia-Pacific region. The knowledge, narratives and records of the past, range from the personal to the social, the spiritual to the art historical. Weight of History examines, through the eyes of artists, how the past has shaped, and continues to shape present day societies, as they engage with and evaluate their local traditions and contexts of culture in a globalised world. This publication includes detailed artwork write-ups and contributions from art collectors on their visions on the collecting of contemporary art today. With full-coloured plates of remarkable contemporary artworks that are seldom exhibited, it also offers a rare view into the world of private art collection.
