Song-Ming Ang to represent Singapore at Venice Biennale

Previous Hospitalfield and ROSL Visual Art Scholar Song-Ming Ang will present a solo exhibition for the Singapore Pavillion in 2019.

The project, entitled Music for Everyone: Variations on a Theme, is curated by Michelle Ho and will be part of the 58th Venice Biennale from 11 May to 24 November 2019.

The work extends Ang’s practice of using music as a platform to explore ideas of public involvement and the various ways people relate to music, both individually and as a society. While on residency at Hospitalfield in 2014, in our partnership with Royal Over-Seas League, Ang not only developed a project which was part of Camden Art Centre’s programme but also initiated a new work inspired by interaction with a historic music stand in our collection. This work was exhibited at the Istanbul Biennial in 2015. You can see excellent documentation of that project, including the video work included in his installation and images of the glass replica of the music stand here…
