Singapore Art Museum
Artists have often drawn inspirations from nature, making amazing works of art in, on and with nature using a range of media. Contemporary artists and designers thus have no lack of examples of how art and nature have been dealt with in and outside of Singapore’s cultural history. They are invited and encouraged to respond to the theme, Inspired by Nature, by proposing artworks that connect to "nature".
Artist commissions in discussion include works which represent and respond to nature as concept or theme in various media. These works engage with the existing architectural structures, spaces and fixtures of the library, as well as the interests, social behaviours of its users from different age groups and walks of life. The exhibition features works by local artists in a variety of media including photography, print, graphic design, sculpture and installation; the exhibition focuses on the theme of nature, and integrates artworks with the nature and design of the library as a public and learning space.
Museum@Woodlands is a project undertaken by National Heritage Board and National Library Board to create a fusion learning space in the form of a museum at a library.
Inspired by Nature is part of Design Design, a thematic grouping of a series of 6 exhibitions presenting design, jointly organised by the National Heritage Board’s Asian Civilizations Museum, Singapore Art Museum, Singapore History Museum, and Singapore Philatelic Museum. The exhibition is proudly associated with DesignSingapore, a national collaborative to promote design excellence in Singapore.
