Reality & Invention

22nd May - 19th September

Gallery of Modern Art

‘Reality & Invention’ focuses on artist responses to social change experienced throughout Asia since the 1980s, and the emergence of realism as a defining artistic strategy of the period. Taking in movements as diverse as Japan’s New Wave, Indian figurative-narrative art and Indonesia’s politically charged New Art Movement, the exhibition features many well-known works from the Gallery’s Collection alongside some rarely seen holdings of major significance.
