Lucy Liu and Shubigi Rao: Unhomed Belongings is co-organised by The Ryan Foundation and the National Museum of Singapore.
Unhomed Belongings presents artworks by two creative minds, Lucy Liu from the United States and Shubigi Rao from Singapore, with striking overlaps in perspective and subject matter. Through an exploration of their respective practices, the artists slowly developed into “visual penfriends” as their discourse unveiled similar themes. Liu and Rao share an interest in examining and dissecting cultures, histories, identities and relationships. Both are also drawn to the repurposing of found objects in their art, as these objets trouvés become narrators to their creations and conduits to their expressions.
The exhibition is free to the public and will run from 12 January to 24 February 2019.
Liu will also make her first trip to Singapore to commemorate the opening. The Ryan Foundation serves as a lively and accessible key player in the local and regional art scene, with a mission to promote arts awareness in Singapore and around the world.
Shubigi Rao is the author of the multi-volume in-progress Pulp series; its first volume was shortlisted for the 2018 Singapore Literature Prize.
