ILHAM X Singapore Art Museum Project: The Body Politic and the Body
December 8, 2019 @ 11:00 am - April 12, 2020 @ 5:00 pm UTC+8Free admission
Presented at ILHAM Gallery in Kuala Lumpur, The Body Politic and the Body explores the many facets of contemporary art and its genealogies in Malaysia. Featuring artworks from Singapore Art Museum’s collection alongside a new commission, artwork adaptations and loans from Malaysian artists, the exhibition examines the socio-political body of contemporary society alongside the individual, subjective body. Like corporeal bodies, the parts make up the whole, and the whole is present in every part. Just as each member of a community is a part of the collective, a community, too, is both one body and many.
