Featuring work from Sedition artist Frederik De Wilde, group exhibition MINIMALISM: Space. Light. Object. at Singapore’s National Gallery will be running until April 2019.
As the first exhibition in Southeast Asia to focus on Minimalism across two leading cultural institutions, it is currently held at both the National Gallery Singapore and the ArtScience Museum. A wide range of historical and contemporary works, immersive and site-specific installations, as well as interdisciplinary programmes are being presented from artists such as Mark Rothko, Carmen Herrera, Tatsuo Miyajima, Donald Judd, Anish Kapoor, Olafur Eliasson, Margaret Leng Tan, Ai Weiwei, Mona Hatoum, Kim Lim, Charwei Tsai, Tang Da Wu, Jeremy Sharma and Lee Ufan.
Featuring over 100 artworks by over 60 artists, the exhibition at National Gallery Singapore focuses on the emergence, development, and legacies of Minimalism from the 1950s to the present day. It considers how artists in Asia, the United States and Europe have explored ideas of presence and absence.
Whilst ArtScience Museum’s exhibition presents a thematic exhibition exploring form, colour and spirituality, where artworks which meditate on notions of emptiness, nothingness and the cosmological void – foundational principles to Minimalism, eastern philosophies and science.
De Wilde will also be simultaneously showing a new quantum data-driven sculpture in the All Possible Paths: Richard Feynman’s Curious Life exhibition at ArtScience Museum, made in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University, and Nobel Museum. As part of the exhibition, the museum ran a conference with 16 scientists, policy-makers and artists, including Nobel Laureates and ministers, who gathered to share their thoughts on the impact of Richard Feynman.
MINIMALISM: Space. Light. Object. runs until 14 April 2019; All Possible Paths: Richard Feynman’s Curious Life runs until 3 March 2019.
