Floating Utopias is a playful and poetic exhibition that explores the social history of inflatable objects, showing how they have been used in art, architecture and social activism over the decades.
Ever since the first hot-air balloon ascended into the skies in the 18th century, inflatable objects have inspired the public’s imagination, generating utopian dreams of castles in the sky, floating laboratories, and cloud cities. With the invention of the hot air balloon, humanity was able to leave the confines of the ground for the first time and experience the Earth from above. The exhibition explores how this pivotal invention shaped the way we understand the world and our place in it.
Discover over 40 artworks by more than 15 international and local artists including Ant Farm, Tools for Action, Eventstructure Research Group, Anna Hoetjes, Luke Jerram, Franco Mazzucchelli, Ahmet Ö?üt, Marco Barotti, Tomás Saraceno, Graham Stevens, The Yes Men, and UFO. The impressive impact of inflatable objects will be conveyed through eight large-scale air-filled sculptures which will be suspended in the galleries, creating a series of dramatic spectacles along the route of the show.
Tickets: Adult SG$18, Family Package of 4 at SG$12.50 each. More options available. Get them HERE!
