Video, an Art, a History 1965-2010. A Selection from the Centre Pompidou and Singapore Art Museum Collections presents Centre Pompidou’s well-received new media travelling exhibition with an added Southeast Asian touch. Its Singapore and Southeast Asia debut will feature an expanded exhibition, showcasing SAM’s own collection of video works and installations by Southeast Asian artists, such as Lee Wen, Dinh Q Lê, Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba and Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, alongside Centre Pompidou’s collection by internationally renowned artists such as Nam June Paik, Bill Viola, Bruce Nauman, Jean-Luc Godard, Pierre Huyghe and Isaac Julien.
Based on the video and multimedia installations of the Centre Pompidou and SAM, the exhibition recounts the history of this very contemporary field punctuating the main phases of contemporary art from 1965 to 2010.
The exhibition materialised from a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Governments of Singapore and France to enhance cultural cooperation.
