Abstract: The idea of contemporary art entails, as a presupposition, the existence of an idea of the contemporary. The contemporary is both an idea of the time in which we and a goal of reacting more effectively to the demands of the immediate present. What then is contemporary art in Singapore, and how does it relate to the sociocultural context within which it functions?
