About the Exhibition

The Think! Contemporary Exhibition 2019 is the culmination of a year-long partnership between the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) and five primary schools: CHIJ Our Lady Queen of Peace, Geylang Methodist School (Primary), Haig Girls’ School, Mayflower Primary School and St. Anthony’s Primary School.

Featuring artworks by pupils who were a part of the Think! Contemporary Programme, the exhibition includes themes related to home, community, identity and the environment – responses to issues and ideas investigated through contemporary artworks featured in SAM exhibitions.

The Think! Contemporary Programme is a multi-visit, museum-based school programme that advocates learning through contemporary art at SAM. Integrating school curricula with museum visits, the programme employs artworks from two SAM exhibitions, Once Upon This Island from SAM’s Learning Gallery and May Tainga ang Lupa (The Land has Ears) by Rodel Tapaya from SAM Mini Mobile Museum, as primary resources for classroom teaching and learning of Art, Character and Citizenship Education, English, Science and Social Studies.

The Think! Contemporary Exhibition 2019 runs from 4 October 2019 to 30 October 2019 at the National Library Board Levels 7 and 8.
