The title of the exhibition is taken from a 1948 poem by Indonesian author Chairil Anwar and describes how artists in the region are negotiating between their history and culture and personal expression.

History buffs will dig the new National Gallery’s exhibition on Southeast Asian modern art, featuring rare masterpieces dating from the 19th century to the 1990s from Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Phillippines. As the largest showcase of its kind here, it will focus on four curatorial themes, including the quest for a national identity and the artists’ socio-political struggles of their times. Post-tour, make a stopover at these chic new dining spots within the galleryOpens 10am-7pm (Mon-Thurs) and 10am-11pm (Fri-Sun), free admission till Dec 6

 

#3: Treasures Of The World From The British Museum
National Museum of Singapore, 93 Stamford Road

The museum's most sought out exhibits: The gold dead mask (left) and the mummy-board, Egypt (right)
Don’t miss these showstoppers: A “death mask” from Jerusalem and an Egyptian mummy-board used in burial ceremonies.
The transformation mask from Canada used during the native dances.
This elaborate mask was used during the 1980s for dances by Native tribes in Canada.

Expect to see stunning relics of ancient civilisations from Africa, Asia and Europe in this six-month-long exhibit. Zoned into seven sections and arranged according to continent, you’ll get a deeper understanding of ancient practices, such as why masks made of gold were once used to cover the faces of the dead, and why an Egyptian mummy-board (the innermost covering of the mummy of a high-ranking woman) is said to be cursed. Another highlight: Items from Sir Stamford Raffles’ personal collection, including a kris and scabbard from the early 19th century. Dec 5-May 29, 10am-7pm daily, $16 for entry
