The modern world today has made all cultures within reach in one way or another. It has made us more aware of similarities and differences in our culture and tradition among countries in the region that we want to learn and understand. Through the mass media like prints, electronic media, magazines and books made accessible from the world it has influenced us in every aspect of our lives. Through contemporary art in the region we are witnessing artists engaging different modes of _expression through the full range of our cultural heritage, traditions and artefacts to explore art relevant to their origins.
ALLEGORY an exhibition aims to present the works of contemporary artists from three countries Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore. The artists selected for this exhibition are works whom the artists explore the issues and events in their respective countries through sculptures, painting and prints in symbolic _expression. Through the different modes of _expression this exhibition attempts to capture their artistic _expression that communicates the deeper meanings through the narration and symbols in their work.
The artists from the three countries invited to show in this exhibition is just a small facet of the larger multi racial and ethnicity of the Asian pacific region. ALLEGORY is in its first attempts to kick off series exhibitions to create dialogue of the cultural and ethnic diversity in the region.

Convergences of Art, Science and Technology ( C.A.S.T )
Singapore Art Museum
Opening 8th September 2003 Monday 6pm
Art becomes the medium through which one can contemplate practices and discourse of science and technology, as well as consider its impact on society. Playful and creative expectations of the future invite your response, while hands-on stations provide interaction for technological interface with science and creativity, including student activities held in conjunction with the exhibition at the Art Lab. The opening installation of the exhibition will feature work by artists, in collaboration with scientists, computer engineers and medical professionals. Their combined wide ranging fields of expertise are a social proposition of a converging future of art, science and technology. A selection of electro-microscopic scientific images captured by researchers of the National Institute of Medical Research (Inserm), France, will be included in this opening installation. These images provide a view of science mimicking art, where images of cells, DNA, neurotransmitters and the brain, appear in unexpected and visually engaging permutations.
