Locations

Initially presented at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (February 22–May 22, 2013), MAP’s inaugural exhibition No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia traveled to two international venues: the Asia Society Hong Kong Center (October 30, 2013–February 16, 2014) and the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (May 10–July 20, 2014). Curated by June Yap, the exhibition and its accompanying programs explored universal themes of national identity, power, and faith.

Organized by Pablo León de la Barra, Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today examines Latin America’s past, present, and future through creative responses to the region’s complex political, economic, and social conditions. The second of three regional exhibitions, Under the Same Sun debuted at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (June 13–October 1, 2014) and will travel to Museo Jumex in Mexico City (November 19, 2015–February 7, 2016).
