The Parkview Museum Singapore will launch the contemporary art show “The Artist’s Voice” in November, the first in a series of thematic exhibitions presented by The Parkview Museum Singapore exploring the complexities of history through the narrative language of contemporary art

“The Artist’s Voice”, which runs from November 17 to March 17, is being curated by internationally acclaimed art historian Lorand Hegyi and will feature works by 34 contemporary artists from various countries and across different generations.

Participating artists include Marina Abramovic, Bill Viola, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Wang Luyan, Jan Fabre, Hermann Nitsch, Dennis Oppenheim, Jannis Kounellis, Anne and Patrick Poirier, Liu Xiaodong, Paolo Grassino, Maurizio Nannucci, Miguel Angel Rios, Sandra Vasquez de la Horra and Gloria Friedmann. 

Some of the works showcased in the exhibition are also part of The Parkview Museum’s permanent collection of works by artists from both Europe and Asia and reflects founder George Wong’s belief in the emotional, imaginary, and evocative power of art and in the power of radical fantasy, which creates poetic metaphors of existence.

The Parkview Museum Singapore is in Parkview Square, 600 North Bridge Road Level 3 Singapore. For more information, visit www.ParkViewMuseum.com
