We hope our unconventional museum learning experience evokes a sense of wonder in students. In the years leading to the building’s opening, we will expand our school outreach effort to showcase the museum as a resource for educators and students.

In Search of Southeast Asia through the M+ Collections

Exhibition period:
22 June – 30 September 2018

In Search of Southeast Asia through the M+ Collections is the first exhibition to present how M+ is addressing the complex region of Southeast Asia in the building of its multidisciplinary collections.

Encompassing visual art, design and architecture, and moving image works from, and about, Southeast Asia—including the nations of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam—the exhibition highlights how M+ is developing a unique perspective on the region as a place that is defined by multiple narratives, histories, and identities.

Featuring archival materials, architectural models, contemporary art installations, and moving image artworks, the exhibition illuminates the region’s historical and contemporary contexts as well as the flow of ideas across borders.
