In 2019, Maybank Foundation supported a travelling exhibition called Entwine: Maybank Women Eco-Weavers Meet Southeast Asian Artists at the National Museum of Singapore. Subsequently, it undertook new ways of promoting Southeast Asian art, culture and heritage by funding video-based artworks for display at the National Museum of Singapore’s LED Wall. One such installation, called New Weave, was presented at the 2021 edition of Singapore Art Week. Put together by cutting-edge animators, New Weave featured mesmerising digital interpretations of traditional weaving practices and explored historic textiles and designs. It also celebrated the work of Southeast Asia’s female weaving communities.
