Thai art show with a vanishing act at Singapore Art Museum


A blockbuster exhibition on contemporary Thai art has opened at the Singapore Art Museum.

The show includes more than 50 works of art such as painting, sculpture, video and mixed-media installations by both established and young artists. It ends next January (2013).

The exhibition, Thai Transience, is a partnership between the museum and the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture of Thailand's Ministry of Culture.

Professor Apinan Poshyananda, director general of the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture and guest-curator of the show, says the theme of impermanence was chosen because it reflects the unpredictable nature of life in Thailand.
