Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative Travels to Singapore in May
No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia will be on view at Singapore’s CCA—NTU Centre for Contemporary Art from May 10 to July 20, 2014. CCA, a national research center of the Nanyang Technological University, is located at Gillman Barracks, a former military camp now home to a cluster of international art galleries.
Previously seen at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and currently on view at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center through February 16, No Country is the inaugural exhibition of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, and introduces audiences to some of today’s most inventive artists from South and Southeast Asia.
Through curatorial residencies, acquisitions for the Guggenheim’s collection, and touring exhibitions, MAP examines contemporary art in three regions: South and Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and North Africa. With a strong educational focus, MAP also presents diverse public programs, including a recent symposium on South and Southeast Asian history through the lens of contemporary art, and cooking demonstrations showcasing the region’s culinary traditions.
