What Gallery enthusiasts and visual artists—this one’s for you. Spanning across two major gallery spaces in Singapore, Minimalism: Space. Light. Object. is the largest exhibition in terms of sheer scope and scale in Southeast Asia, showcasing Minimalism and its inherent quality in experiencing art. Start your journey from the National Gallery Singapore, which covers the historical aspect of Minimalism, before moving on to the ArtScience Museum, where you can find conceptual and immersive works inspired from this artistic tendency. With artworks such as Rothko’s colour-field paintings making an exciting appearance as well, it seeks to explore Minimalism’s lesser discussed element of spirituality that has often manifested in Asian works and artists; venturing beyond the European and American spheres that once dominated the artistic landscape in the 60s.

What From November 23 to December 9, the Opera Gallery Singapore is playing host to a series of paintings by renowned French painter, André Brasilier. Recognised for his vibrant colour palette, his remarkable artistic career has witnessed the creation of several iconic works that sets him apart from the conventional thematic time periods of art. Often associated with the motif of nature, Brasilier harmonises the spirituality of his featured subject in relation to its surroundings to depict tranquillity and presents the more subtle and intricate dynamics within. Paintings such as Sous les tilleuls (1988), Petite fantasia marocaine (2018) and Récital aux Invalides (2018) has found its way to our shores.
