Utopias - Michael Lee and Bob Matthews
25 November to 18 December 2011, The National Museum of Singapore, The Atelier, Level 3
Utopias is an exhibition arising from the Artist-in-Residence Exchange Programme (AiRx) with the Singapore International Foundation and British Council Singapore to create opportunities for bridging communities in Singapore and the UK through collaborations and the exchange of ideas. Give Art is presentation and curatorial partner.
In Utopias, Lee and Matthews draw from personal meditations on utopian ideologies. Lee imbues iconic architecture with human characteristics, memories and a sense of solace for human failings, while Matthews explores eco-utopias where natural landscapes provide a romantic and almost divine escape.
