Tropical: Stories from Southeast Asia and Latin America

Art & Culture

Uncover hidden connections between the seemingly distant realms of Southeast Asia and Latin America with National Gallery Singapore’s latest blockbuster exhibition, Tropical: Stories from Southeast Asia and Latin America. Showing from 18 November 2023 to 24 March 2024, Tropical is the world’s largest comparative exhibition of artistic expressions from both regions, featuring over 200 artworks, sculptures, drawings, performances, and immersive installations by more than 70 artists, encompassing the breadth of the 20th century.

Through Tropical, the Gallery invites visitors to venture across space and time to gain a first-hand look at the artists’ shared stories and experiences since the 1920s. Look forward to floating artworks on “crystal easels”, weaving through draping textile artworks “wearable” art which you can activate with your body and the opportunity to see a painting by iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
