93 Stamford Road
Singapore, Central Singapore

This exhibition explores the theme of the “Family”, the central building block of Singapore society, by looking at Singaporeans’ sense of identity, rootedness and connection to their families both in Singapore and abroad, in cities such as London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Taipei, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. Presented over five series of works by Clang, namely Being Together, The Moment, Fear of Losing The Existence, Guilt and Erasure, the exhibition will showcase over 90 works by the artist, and more than 40 historical portraits of the family from the National Museum of Singapore’s own collection.

Being Together: Family & Portraits — Photographing with John Clang draws from Clang’s personal experience of being separated from his family, and touches upon a predicament that many Singaporeans of various ethnic groups face today. It is a journey of appreciation of who we are as a people, in the context of today’s globalised world.
