The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has impacted and changed life for everyone. ArtScience Museum’s new exhibition “Hope from Chaos: Pandemic Reflections” marks the second anniversary of the Covid-19 pandemic examines the art and science of epidemics. The exhibition documents the pandemic’s indelible impact on the world, attempts to examine the science of epidemics and presents an intimate, unique look into the lives and practices of visual artists as they lived through and with Covid-19.
Visitors to the exhibition will begin their journey with a free introductory display from The Smithsonian Institution, USA titled Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World. This part of the exhibition explores how pathogens can spread from wildlife to humans and why some outbreaks become epidemics. Hope from Chaos continues with a ticketed display, curated by ArtScience Museum, that features emotive artworks by artists from Singapore, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe.
