The Parkview Museum Singapore is pleased to announce the contemporary art exhibition Disturbing Narratives, the third of a series of thematic shows presented by The Parkview Museum. The exhibition is aimed at exploring the complexity of our historical time through the interrogation of the authentic narratives in contemporary art praxis and discourse.
The third thematic show, Disturbing Narratives, explores irritating and disturbing experiences and emotions of fear, uncertainty, irrationality, ambivalence and bewilderment hidden behind the surface and the conventional perception of our daily life. Artists, poets, thinkers, philosophers as well as ordinary citizens, are all deeply concerned with these disturbing phenomena that challenge our perception of human existence as a reality that can be rationally and logically understood and acknowledged. The artist, through his radical imagination, elaborates disturbing and destabilizing improbabilities that reflect and shed light on the complexity of human existential experiences and character. These uncertainties and improbabilities have the power to liberate the viewers’ imagination They give space to freedom of interpretation, unusual connections between linguistic and psychological systems and boost a strong desire of discovering new perspectives in understanding the complexity of human life and the multiplicity of anthropological constellations.
The exhibition is curated by the Art Director of The Parkview Museum Lorand Hegyi and will run until 8th of February 2020. It presents over 30 artists from Europe, Asia, Africa and North & South America who are working with completely different visual languages and media: spanning painting, drawing, photography, video, sculpture and installation.
