Singapore’s one of a kind art space, the Museum of Art & Design is now bigger, better and insanely bolder in what it plans to achieve in the coming years. The Museum of Art & Design is celebrating its move to a larger space, which is still in the heart of Orchard at Tanglin Road. With this move, it promises to offer a more comprehensive programme that includes showcases and workshops from an exciting line up of established and emerging artists from all over the world. What is more interesting to know is that MAD will also be dedicating its new space to lend a greater support and emphasis on the growing importance of design in Asia. In addition, the museum also hopes to work closely with the government, curators, corporations, and other galleries to help nurture local designers and artists to elevate Singapore’s status as an art and design hub in South East Asia.
With eighteen artists, 10 countries and 19,000 sq. ft. of art and design space, the Museum is celebrating its new chapter with a big bang. Established as well as emerging artists from all over the world including Japan, Korea, China, Singapore, Thailand and France will be showing their collections in the various spaces within the new two-storey building. From paintings, sculptures, furniture to graffiti, the genres of art and design presented at this opening promise to be diverse and dazzling. A special tribute will be presented to show love to the late Taiwanese artist Chiu Ya Tsai who passed away in April of 2013. Also expect heavyweights in the industry namely, Song Wei (China), Kim Robinson (Australia/HongKong), Wu Yong Ping (China), Danny Yung (HongKong), Lee Kiyoung (Korea), KONGO Cyril Phan (France) as well as emerging upstarts like Yuji Mizuta (Japan), Wu Tung-Lung (Taiwan), Saran Yen (Thailand), Li Shi Guang (China) and Bruno de Caumont (France). There will also be familiar names like Hans Tan (Singapore), Jeffrey Ho (Singapore), and Ismadi Sallehudin (Malaysia). Also, sculptors to watch out for like Hsu Yung Hsu (Taiwan), Shi Jian Min (China) and Yang Fan (China) will also be present to make the launch a very comprehensive and thought provoking affair.
