Sullivan+Strumpf is proud to announce the grand opening and inaugural exhibition of their new gallery space at Singapore’s Gillman Barracks.
As the first Australian gallery to establish its presence in Asia, S+S will open an exhibition space in Singapore at the dynamic arts enclave, Gillman Barracks. For Directors and Owners, Ursula Sullivan and Joanna Strumpf, this new endeavour aims to present a platform for artists to further develop and reach the broader Southeast Asian arts community while nurturing its existing relationships.
Sullivan and Strumpf met 20 years ago and forged a partnership over a shared passion for contemporary art. Their goal has always been focused: to connect artists and art with museums and collectors. Being in Asia on a permanent basis is the next step to bringing greater visibility for artists to the region and developing new opportunities.
The gallery has established a strong identity in Asia already by its active presence at art fairs. Through its Singapore gallery, S+S will embark on a series of exhibitions showcasing its artists – both emerging and established - and also aims to foster engagement with local and regional artists.
The inaugural exhibition Arrival explores the work of artists reflecting on themes such as identity, materiality, construction of memory, as well as the fragility and malleability of the human condition. Through recent works in diverse media – such as sculpture, painting, photography and installation – Arrival encourages spectators to delve into the complexity of contemporary art practice.
