Exhibition — from 25 Nov 2018

This year, the theme of the Municipal Art Acquisitions exhibition is ‘Freedom of Movement’. The term ‘Freedom of Movement’ is commonly used to describe civilians’ ability to travel visa-free outside their native land. As neo-nationalist and populist political movements gain impetus in the West, usage of the phrase ‘Freedom of Movement’ has soared. Interpreted poetically, the notion of ‘Freedom of Movement’ also refers to the body itself: its ability to move, take action and have agency. The Municipal Art Acquisitions 2018 focuses primarily on time-based media such as film, video, performance, dance, theatre, new media, sound and internet art
