Yavuz Gallery | Closer than they appear

Yavuz Gallery is proud to present the second iteration of "Closer than they appear," a two-part exhibition celebrating the gallery's 10-year anniversary in both Singapore and Sydney. This group exhibition, features 15 acclaimed Asia-Pacific artists, such as: Navin Rawanchaikul, Guy Maestri, Manit Sriwanichpoom, and Agus Suwage.

About the Exhibition

Featuring 15 celebrated artists originating from across the Asia-Pacific region, "Closer than they appear" acts as a wormhole to connect Yavuz's two gallery locations in Sydney and Singapore. Representing a diversity of generations, approaches, and viewpoints, artists embark on this spatial journey by exploring understandings of landscape, country, and location; as well as temporally – evoking life, death, and rebirth. Glancing into our metaphorical rear-view mirror at this decadal anniversary, 2020 provides us the opportunity to reflect on our past as we advance into the future.
