Actress-artist Lucy Liu will Feature in Singapore Contemporary Art Exhibition Co-presented by The Ryan Foundation

The Ryan Foundation, a private non-profit arts organisation started by lawyer and art collector Ryan Su, is proud to kick off Singapore’s art calendar in 2019 with Unhomed Belongings — Singapore’s first major art exhibition featuring award-winning Hollywood actress and artist Lucy Liu (USA) and Jurors’ Choice Award recipient Shubigi Rao (Singapore). The exhibition is free to the public and will run from 12 January to 24 February 2019 at the historic Stamford Gallery in the National Museum of Singapore. Liu will also make her first trip to Singapore to commemorate the opening. The Ryan Foundation serves as a lively and accessible key player in the local and regional art scene, with a mission to promote arts awareness in Singapore and around the world.

Lucy Liu and Shubigi Rao: Unhomed Belongings is co-organised by The Ryan Foundation and the National Museum of Singapore. Unhomed Belongings presents artworks by two creative minds, Lucy Liu (b.1968) from the United States and Shubigi Rao (b.1975) from Singapore, with striking overlaps in perspective and subject matter. Through an exploration of their respective practices, the artists slowly developed into “visual penfriends” as their discourse unveiled similar themes. Liu and Rao share an interest in examining and dissecting cultures, histories, identities and relationships. Both are also drawn to the repurposing of found objects in their art, as these objets trouvés become narrators to their creations and conduits to their expressions. The artistic dialogue between these two kindred spirits will be documented for the first time at the National Museum of Singapore, with the exhibition housed in the Stamford Gallery, the museum’s oldest and most historically rich space.

“It is important for The Ryan Foundation to be a platform with an international outlook that encourages diverse cultural exchanges around art. The Singapore art scene is developing, and it is timely to show two artists who happen to be strong women as they navigate themes of identity and growth with such honesty and strength. We connected instantly with Lucy and her art, and knew at once we had to share her powerful work with everyone,” said Ryan Su, founding director of The Ryan Foundation. “We are committed to raising the profile of contemporary art in Singapore and Asia by collaborating with international artists to present publicly engaging content.”

Unhomed Belongings highlights the honest parallels between two artists who hitherto have never met before, yet possess interesting commonalities in their artistic practices. Their artworks are presented in thoughtful conversation: Liu’s installation Lost and Found echoes Rao’s Stabbing at Immortality: Building a Better Jellyfish, where the artists invite viewers to examine objects that may seem ordinary at first glance but possess peculiar character when observed up-close. Through their delicate yet deliberate craftwork, Liu and Rao transform the ordinary into the conceptual, and the salvaged into the sublime.

Liu’s artwork addresses themes of security, salvation, and the long-term effects of personal relationships on our physical and emotional selves. Her exploration spans multiple mediums, taking the forms of painting, sculpture, collage, silkscreen, video and found objects appropriated into handmade reliquaries. A key artwork featured in Unhomed Belongings is an installation titled Lost and Found, which consists of discarded objects Liu picks up on her travels, hidden in around 200 hand-made books. Visitors are encouraged to pick up the books and open them, and free to replace them anywhere within the installation. In this way, visitors become participants in a cycle of rediscovery, as the lost objects are given new meaning not only through the narrative that Lucy has created for them within her books, but also through the constant re-ordering of the books themselves.

“Many people know me as an actress, but visual art has always been an equally important part of my life. My work is personal in nature – inspired by my memories and experiences, by shifting notions of security and salvation, and how these experiences and ideas manifest themselves physically in the body. It is exciting to be able to connect with new audiences through all expressions of art, and I am so excited to exhibit my works in Singapore for the first time, presented in conversation with Shubigi Rao, a Singaporean female artist. I would like to thank The Ryan Foundation and the National Museum of Singapore for their incredible efforts in making this possible,” said Lucy Liu, featured artist, award-winning actress and director.

The Ryan Foundation is a Singapore non-profit arts organisation that aims to increase arts awareness by developing ambitious projects and exhibitions in Singapore and around the world. Previous exhibitions organised by The Ryan Foundation include Andy Warhol: Social Circus in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur (featuring the largest collection of Warhol’s Polaroid photography ever exhibited in Asia), Ryder Ripps’ Diventare Schiavo in Venice and Singapore (a virtual reality artwork that challenged the boundaries of contemporary art) and Re|Collecting Asia: Selections from Singapore Private Collections.

Lucy Liu and Shubigi Rao: Unhomed Belongings is the highlight of the Singapore art calendar in January 2019, a month when the city will be abuzz with art fairs, exhibitions and gallery openings. This monumental exhibition creates an interesting interaction between Liu’s and Rao’s work by representing contemporary issues of identity and relationships, and positions Singapore as a global destination for contemporary artists. The exhibition will run from 12 January to 24 February 2019 at the National Museum of Singapore, and admission is free to the public. Events planned for Unhomed Belongings include an artist talk and an art collectors’ roundtable, details of which will be released in due course. The Ryan Foundation and the National Museum of Singapore will also jointly publish a limited edition hardcover catalogue for the landmark exhibition in a print run of 500.

Hannover Marketing and Tourism GmbH: Experience the Magic of Hanover This Winter and Christmas

Roasted almonds, mulled wine, Christmas trees and candles combine across many parts of Hanover to create that unmistakable aroma between November 28 and December 22. A mediaeval spirit prevails on the Christmas market in the historical village right in the Old City. Smiths and brush makers display their skilled crafts, as jugglers, magicians and mystical creatures put on shows guaranteed to amaze. A Scandinavian Christmas can be experienced on Ballhofplatz (Ballhof Square).

A magical atmosphere prevails in the Wishing Well Forest right in front of the Historical Museum – the wishing well with its wishing ring, which, according to legend, fulfils wishes once it has been turned, is at the centre of the welcoming wood with its more than 50 fir trees.

Hanover Marketing and Tourism GmbH has put together a small tour for you to immerse yourself in the city’s Christmas markets:

GOP Winter Variety Show: Sông Trăng – When the moon is reflected in the river
Mysticism, desire. Love of tradition. Modern dynamism. Small villages. Huge metropolises. Modern-day Vietnam is pure fascination. The Sông Trăng show puts the Vietnamese soul on the stage at the GOP Theatre in the Orangery of the Herrenhäuser Gardens from November 24 to January 13. The rustling of the dewy grass of morning, waves rippling in Halong Bay, a woman’s voice whispering softly of desire – on the other side the bustle of the city of Hanoi, crackling scooters. These contradictions and immersion in a different culture lie at the centre of the 15th Winter Variety Show. All 13 artistes are from the Vietnam Circus Federation. They reveal their artistic skills, with Vietnam’s characteristic raw material – bamboo – playing a major role. This fantastic show is framed by a blend of current pop and traditional Vietnamese music.

Magical Winter Zoo in Hanover’s Adventure Zoo
A winter wonderland right in the heart of Hanover! The theme worlds of Meyers Hof and Mullewapp turn into a sparkling winter world in Hanover’s Adventure Zoo between November 23 and February 3 – an all-round winter package of magic for the entire family and all those seeking to end the working day in enjoyment. With its open-air skating rink, toboggan runs, winter market with culinary delights, arts and crafts, skating school, Santa Claus and ice disco, a visit to Hanover’s Adventure Zoo is fully in the spirit of winter.

Hanover Christmas Circus: Skilled acrobats, magicians and myths from the Middle Kingdom
The Winter Circus has enjoyed huge popularity in Hanover for the past two years, with a total audience to date of 50,000 watching the top international programme in the Christmas season. This year the Christmas Circus is putting on a programme by the Chinese National Circus between December 20 and 31. The show marks 30 years exactly since the famous circus came to Hanover for the first time. The top artistes from the Middle Kingdom are marking this anniversary with a special gala show. Oriental and fast-paced, familiar and joyful are the watchwords as the more than 30 devotees of their craft present their extraordinary light-as-a-feather skills in colourful robes for Christmas. Apart from daring pyramids, brave balancing acts, high-speed juggling, amusing clowning and incredible contortionism, there are also playful fantasy figures and extravagant costumes to lend the show a friendly face at the centre of the colourful display.
