Climate change is a global issue that has serious implications for our present and future. While the Singapore Green Plan 2030 and other national initiatives outline Singapore’s efforts at creating a sustainable city, how has climate change been considered on a regional level within a Southeast Asian context? How does it affect Singapore and our neighbours?
The National Museum of Singapore together with Maybank Foundation is pleased to showcase three multimedia artworks that were created as an artistic response to these questions. The artists have drawn inspiration from the museum’s collection to create fresh connections between environmental issues that concern our present and allow us to imagine what our future might look like.
Selected from an Open Call that was held between April to May 2021, Indefinite Waters (DASSAD), Second Chance (Robert Zhao) and Choosing Today for our Tomorrows (Ong Wei Ting) offer a mix of artistic styles, originality and innovativeness in their quest to engage audiences on the issues of climate change and sustainability.
Behind-the-scenes With The Artists
As you immerse yourself in the audio-visual experience of these creative works, we invite you to reflect on your personal relationship with the environment and to envision the role you can play in building a sustainable future.
