This exhibition establishes a dialogue between paintings by the Argentinean artist César Paternosto and works from the museum’s permanent collection.
Curated by César Paternosto himself, it analyses the shift in the pictorial paradigm which, at the start of the 20th century, led artists to rediscover painting as object, in contrast to the Renaissance illusionism that had transformed the canvas into a window through which to see visible reality.

The exhibition will thus include canvases by Paternosto displayed alongside works by Picasso, Gris, Mondrian and Torres-García with the aim of encouraging visitors to reflect on this artistic transformation, which began more than a century ago.

Towards Painting as Object features eight works by Paternosto loaned from public and private collections, five from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection and one from the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection.

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
