Singapore Art Museum, Singapore
For the longest time, I had no idea contemporary art existed in Asia. Well, that was surely disproven when I saw the SAM. It was a multistory museum in two separate venues, one geared for children and the other for young adults and up.
At the time, the “Panorama: Recent Art from Contemporary Asia” exhibit was on (it might still be on until December 2012) and it was hands down the best of its kind I’ve seen. Aside from addressing key issues like government corruption, it did so candidly, which is rare in highly policed and political places like Singapore or many other regions in Asia, for that matter. Not only did it open my eyes to lot of culturally heavy issues, it was graceful in its delivery. And that, in itself, was the best part of my visit.
