2219: Futures Imagined
The ArtScience Museum, in our book, always puts on interesting exhibitions. Their latest, is quite a curious approach to a much talked-about topic – the approaching climate emergency. The exhibition has tapped on many local and international artists, architects, filmmakers, writers and theatre companies to imagine how Singapore might look like two hundred years from now, unfolding over five segments which take visitors on a journey from 2019 to 2219. Illustrious Singapore names taking part in the exhibition includes artists Yanyun Chen (her work pictured here), Priyageetha Dia, Robert Zhao and more. Details here.
