For Art’s Sake 2023 presents 80 new artworks reimagining famous and iconic Western art, with a twist.

Living in Southeast Asia, the Western world has long had an immense influence on how we live – from the lasting impact of colonial rule, to the cultural dominance of Western media until now.

So we thought, what if we took their art and “GOFY’d” it up? 

By injecting modern Southeast Asian flavour and style into these masterpieces from across art movements and history, this collection aims to playfully explore our Southeast Asian identity and collective experience, while reflecting on the universality of art.

As we pay a cheeky homage to the influence of Western canon artworks, we simultaneously celebrate our roots by forging our own path. While you enjoy the artworks, you’ll find that Southeast Asia’s rich diversity yet “same same but different” quality makes us unlike any other. 

For Art's Sake 2023 was presented as an exhibition at 20 homegrown businesses island-wide from 14 October 2023 to 28 January 2024.
