Between Declarations and Dreams: Art of Southeast Asia Since the 19th Century

Regular price ₱4,500.00

An accompanying publication of the inaugural exhibition of the National Gallery Singapore, 'Between Declarations and Dreams: Art of Southeast Asia Since the 19th Century'. It tracks the broad time periods and thematic sections of the exhibition with more than 300 artwork images. These are accompanied by essays that provide curatorial insight to a task as monumental and intricate as the positing an art history of a region as diverse as Southeast Asia.

The title 'Between Declarations and Dreams' is taken from a 1948 poem by Indonesian author Chairil Anwar, who epitomised the modern artist as a creative individual. The phrase captures the experience of artists in Southeast Asia, working between the historical, ideological or political markers that frame their practice, and the personal, subjective, expressive and creative motivations in artmaking.
