Asian Civilisations Museum

The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) is the first museum in the region to present a broad yet integrated perspective of pan-Asian cultures and civilisations. As one of the National Museums of Singapore under the National Heritage Board, we seek to promote a better appreciation of the rich cultures that make up Singapore's multi-ethnic society.

While Singapore's forefathers came to settle in Singapore from many parts of Asia within the last 200 years, the cultures brought to Singapore by these different people are far more ancient. This aspect of Singapore's history is the focus of the ACM. The Museum's collection therefore centres on the material cultures of the different groups originating from China, Southeast Asia, South Asia and West Asia.

E-flux Journal

e-flux journal issue #0
November 2008

With this first, inaugural issue of e-flux journal, we begin something of an experiment in developing both a discursive space and a site for actual art production, in which writers, artists, and thinkers are invited to write on topics of their choosing. While it is our hope that the contributions included here can begin to give a sense of how varied the concerns and urgencies being engaged today are, we also expect that certain consistencies and overarching issues will emerge through them, and help us shape the forthcoming issues of the journal.

HEMA UPADHYAY: Universe Revolves On

8 November -13 December 2008

Hema Upadhyay’s newly produced works at STPI question the meaning of ‘home’ in the face of India’s rapid urbanisation using autobiography and personal insights. One of India’s illustrious contemporary artists, Upadhyay returns to printmaking after a decade’s hiatus. She says, “The STPI residency was a very important offer at that point of my art making where I felt the need for intervention within my comfort zone.” Upadhyay’s monumental works astound with their innovative installment of structures made from Chinese wood puzzles and application of clay onto STPI handmade paper. “I believe Hema’s analysis of worldly struggles developed her visual symbols for these works,” comments STPI’s Master Papermaker Richard Hungerford.
