Fact Has No Appearance

Art Beyond the Object

The exhibition "A Fact Has No Appearance" explores the impact of new ideas on art in Southeast Asia during the 1970s through the case studies of three artists: Johnny Manahan, Redza Piyadasa, and Tan Teng-Kee, all of whom have been recognised for breaking ground in Southeast Asian modern art. With essays that deliberate upon the impact of their works during the 1970s as well as a rich documentation of their works and archival materials, this catalogue presents a concise study of the three artists and also offers insight into how conceptual art practices took hold in this region.
