After Utopia: Revisiting The Ideal In Asian Contemporary ArtAfter Utopia: Revisiting The Ideal In Asian Contemporary Art by Singapore Art Museum

In naming his fictional island 'Utopia', writer Thomas More conjoined the Greek words for 'good place' and 'no place' - a reminder that the idealised society he conjured was fundamentally phantasmal. Yet, the search and yearning for Utopia is a ceaseless endeavour. Predicated on a sense that the world is not enough, utopian principles and models of worlds have been perpetually re-imagined, and continue to haunt our consciousness through the centuries. Drawing mainly from the Singapore Art Museum's permanent collection, as well as artists' collections and new commissions, the exhibition After Utopia sought to ask where and how we have located these expressions of both our innermost yearnings as well as our contemporary realities. This fully illustrated catalogue features critical essays as well as artwork captions by the curators of After Utopia: Revisiting the Ideal in Asian Contemporary Art.

The exhibition at Singapore Art Museum (SAM) revelled in the rich expanse of materials that contemporary artworks can be made of, and from, with artwork media ranging from oil paint to rattan, human hair, bullet shells, as well as 'dematerialised' media like sound and language. Encompassing 31 Southeast Asian and Asian contemporary artworks that were largely drawn from SAM's permanent collection, the exhibition examined the fluid nature of art as concept, process, method, and material. This fully illustrated exhibition catalogue features five curatorial essays that reflect upon a range of issues surrounding contemporary art, such as the notion of time as a material, the relationship between painting and photography, the meaning of material(s), and how contemporary art is collected in a museum.

Singapore has numerous wild plants that grow and flower freely in our city-state, adding colour and beauty to even the most urban and drab of areas. Yet, all too often, we walk past these common flowering plants without even noticing them. And when we do, we are able to name only one or two - perhaps the common touch-me-not, or the morning glory. Here, then, is an easy-to-use guide to help the general public fully appreciate and put a name to the many wayside flowers of Singapore. This book is in full colour, with excellent close-up photography for each flower, showing each species in close detail, so that its parts can be clearly seen. The book also shows the plant in its typical natural environment, be it up a wall or in a drain. The flowers have been grouped by their predominant colour - blue, green, orange, pink, purple, white or yellow - making it easy for the user to locate the flower in the book.

Who Are You My Country? Voices Of Singaporeans Past And PresentWho Are You My Country? Voices Of Singaporeans Past And Present by Winston Toh Ghee Wei; T. Kwek Et Al (Eds.)

From the 1930s to 1965, discussions about modernisation, race and civic responsibility were as common as they are today. The youth of colonial Singapore wrote passionately about these issues, seeking to enkindle the idea of a nation that did not yet exist. The poetry and stories that encapsulate how they saw Singapore have become more, not less, relevant. In Who Are You My Country?, the youth of modern Singapore build on those stories and use them to create a vision for what our post-SG50 nation might look like. As the historical publications were to those students of the past, we hope this anthology will also be to us a shared space for the collective imagination of our Singapore.
