How much do you know about the planet we inhabit? The Singapore Art Museum welcomes you back to the 7th edition of our family-focused exhibition Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth. Through the eyes of nine contemporary artists, this year’s Imaginarium takes a closer look at our surroundings and the environments we reside in.Over millennia, humankind has made vast progress in charting the lands we inhabit: globalisation and technology have meant that distant locations and far-flung communities are now easier to connect with. Yet, how much do we really know of what constitutes the Earth’s wonderful terrains? Consider as welll how the practices of cultures are inextricably tied to the places they inhabit, and people – either by choice or necessity -- adapt to ever-changing environments. Similarly, a locale’s plants and animals have also evolved unique traits to adapt to their habitats.There remains much more to learn about earth’s magnificent marvels, with the closest adventure a possible stone's throw away! Through inspiring and engaging artworks, we invite the adventurers who visit Imaginarium 2017 to find new ways of discovering the endlessly fascinating world around them.Website: www.singaporeartmuseum.sgFacebook: www.facebook.com/singaporeartmuseumInstagram: www.instagram.com/singaporeartmuseum
