The seventh edition of Singapore Art Museum's annual family-focused contemporary art exhibition returns with Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth.

Held from 6 May to 27 August at SAM at 8Q, explorers of all ages are invited to take a closer look at our surroundings and the environments we reside in through immersive, tactile and interactive artworks by nine contemporary artists.

Featuring site-specific adaptations and specially commissioned artworks, Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth examines how humans, flora and fauna adapt to their habitats, and introduces ideas and stories surrounding lands both real and imagined.

Visitors can look forward to artworks that come alive through audience interaction, such as UuDam Tran Nguyen's app-operated drawing robot in LICENSE 2 DRAW and Mary Bernadette Lee's tactile, responsive mobiles in Wanderland, or through artist performances and workshops, such as in Hiromi Tango’s immersive Lizard Tail installation (featured here).

To delve deeper into the concepts explored in the exhibition, visitors have the opportunity to meet the artists and curators of Imaginarium through a series of guided exhibition tours, artist workshops and toddler art workshops that will take place over the course of the exhibition.

Other family-friendly activities include daily screenings of short films inspired by the vastness of lands at the Moving Image Gallery, as well as immersive storytelling sessions for young audiences.
