Rodney SMITH, Skyline, Hudson River, New York, 1995
RODNEY SMITH (1947-2016)
It is with great sadness that we announce Rodney Smith's passing in New York on 05 December 2016. Smith was world renowned for his whimsical black-and-white photographs of elegantly dressed subjects, in idyllic, surrealistic environments. A testament of his time, his work was regularly published in Time, Fortune and The New York Times Magazine and was an inspiration to his fellow photographers.
We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Music Manuscript 30-48 by the Singapore Art Museum. The series of 19 pieces was presented for the first time during the President Young Talents 2015 exhibition at 8Q at SAM.
Ang's installation Something Old, Something New is currently on view at The Institute for Contemporary Art, Singapore until 01 February 2017. More works by the artist can also be found here.

CHUN KAI QUN
10 JAN - 19 FEB 2017
Prayers are predicated on desires, dreams, hopes, and may take the form of words and deeds. For Chun Kai Qun, his art objects are imbibed by the desire to remake his world. He believes that human beings have always projected their identities onto objects, thereby creating a permanent essence of substance and dwelling within a material thing.
Moreover, the enduring materiality of objects can sometimes outlive the creator and is able to procure a sense of existence beyond the mortality of the physical body. Chun, the quintessential object maker, thus transforms a spiritual invocation into a solid form, and possibly extending his prayers well into the afterlife.
