The works featured in PANORAMA were acquired within the past three years. The first exhibition in the series features works by 24 artists from eight Asian countries, including notable works by Agnes Arellano, Agus Suwage, Louie Cordero, Nalini Malani, Sakarin Krue-On, Sherman Ong and :phunk among others. The works span various mediums from painting, sculpture, drawing and photography to video and installation.
Works presented in PANORAMA explore the issues of our time, such as consumerism and capitalism in Asia; the vibrant, rich and diverse streetscapes of Asian cities; how traditions and values clash and co-exist with the rapid urbanisation and modernisation that is inescapable in any Asian society, and the pervasive influence of mass media and celebrity culture.
