The Possibility of an Island
'The Possibility of an Island' aims to provide an introduction into the incredibly vast, diverse and extremely vibrant contemporary art landscape of Southeast-Asia.
A3-Arndt Art Agency is delighted to be part of the inaugural exhibition program at Cromwell Place, London, for the landmark presentation The Possibility of an Island. This show aims to provide an introduction for Western audiences into the incredibly vast, diverse and extremely vibrant contemporary art landscape of Southeast Asia and the surrounding Asia Pacific Region. Curated by A3 founder, Matthias Arndt, this in-depth focus is the result of a decade-long exploration into the innovative creative figures within an array of vibrant contemporary art scenes arising within countries such as the Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore and Australia.
The Possibility of an Island includes key artists from specific regions who are celebrated extensively in their own countries. In many cases, this exhibition represents the individual artist’s debut on the London stage. These creative positions are united by the fact that they originate from islands; thousands of archipelagos, surrounded by water. The incredibly diverse cultural threads and languages located within the distinct artworks in the show are held together by this commonality that is communicated inherently within their lived experiences in order to express their differences and similarities.
Cromwell Place is open to the public from Wednesday through Saturday 10am – 6pm, and 12pm - 4pm on Sundays. Tuesdays are reserved for invitation only visits.
Entry is free
