A Fact Has No Appearance: Art Beyond the Object and Earth Work 1979

This exhibition investigates the impact of new ideas on Southeast Asian art in the 1970s by focusing on three key artists: Johnny Manahan (The Philippines), Redza Piyadasa (Malaysia), and Tan Teng-Kee (Malaysia/Singapore). 

Each artist broke new ground in Southeast Asian modern art, challenging the boundaries of painting, sculpture, photography, video, and performance. Featuring original artworks, photographs, and documents, 'A Fact Has No Appearanceprovides an insight into the approaches of three highly innovative artists during a dynamic moment in the region’s history.

This exhibition is complemented by 'Earth Work 1979' in Concourse Gallery 2, which examines the work of Tang Da Wu
