Shazia Sikander and Aisha Khalid at the Singapore Art Museum

Aisha Khalid and Shahzia Sikandar are participating artists at:  Credit Suisse: Innovation In Art Series - The Collectors Show: Weight of History exhibition - Jan 25 to May 5, 2013.
The Collectors Show is one of the most anticipated shows on the arts calendar and continues to present compelling contemporary artworks from private collections in Asia. Defying conventional expectations of private art collections as being merely showpieces to be hung on walls, this edition features a spectrum of more than 20 works that show how artists perceive, and re-conceive the multiple facets of history in the Asia-Pacific region.
Shahzia Sikander, The explosion of the Company man, 2011, Gouache, hand painting, gold leaf and silkscreened pigment on paper, 203 x 20 x 173 cm, The Rose Trust collection.
Curated and independently organised by SAM, Weight of History examines how artists engage with, and evaluate, local traditions and culture, translating them into masterpieces which display the interconnected relationship between past and present in our increasingly globalised societies.
