EXHIBITION AT CENTRE POMPIDOU
Latiff Mohidin and his Pago Pago series are the focus of the latest collaboration between Centre Pompidou and the National Gallery Singapore: Pago Pago: Latiff Mohidin (1960-1969). The south Asian artist’s series’ name means “a manner of thinking and working that complicated Western modernism through the initiation of dialogues with other avant-garde thinkers in Southeast Asia”.
At Centre Pompidou, the visitors can admire over 70 artworks and archive materials which were brought together through public and private collections from Singapore and Malaysia.
The exhibition – the first travelling exhibition on Southeast Asian art – is curated by Catherine David, from Centre Pompidou, and Shabbir Hussain Mustafa, from National Gallery Singapore, and will be open between February 28 and May 28.
