I recently visited the Singapore Art Museum and its Singapore Biennale 2016 exhibition "An Atlas of Mirrors". This museum is the perfect place if you would like to get an introduction into South-East Asian contemporary art showcasing colourful but at the same time deeply emotional and intellectual artworks examining global current and historical events.
"The Singapore Art Museum focuses on international contemporary art practices, specialising in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Housed in a restored 19th century mission school, it opened its doors in 1996 as the first art museum in Singapore. Also known as SAM, the museum is now a contemporary art museum. SAM has built one of the world's most important public collections of Southeast Asian contemporary artworks, with a growing component in international contemporary art."
