See Asia through its artists

Works from the region make their way here in a travelling exhibition by the Guggenheim

If you want to see what is happening with South and South-east Asian art, a travelling exhibition which makes its final stop in Singapore this month could be a good place to start.

The small scale show featuring 19 artworks by 16 emerging and established artists and collectives is an initiative by the famous Guggenheim Museum in New York to widen its Western-centric collection by featuring art from this part of the world.

It appointed Singaporean curator June Yap to pick the artworks which form part of the museum's permanent collection.

Yap, 40, who worked in the curatorial departments of the Institute of Contemporary Arts in Singapore and the Singapore Art Museum, and has been an independent curator since 2008, spent three months travelling the region to visit the artists and select the works for the exhibition titled, No Country: Contemporary Art For South And South-east Asia.
