Haridas Contemporary is excited to announce Melissa Tan’s debut solo exhibition with the gallery. The show features fifteen new works by Melissa, continuing her exploration of goddesses and their chapters in mythology. Each work posits a scene unfolding around an earth-bound goddess. Featuring seven wall-bound works and eight free-standing sculptures, each intricate piece portrays a goddess shielding herself with a resilience in overcoming and accepting insurmountable circumstances.

Re-interpreting the works alongside Melissa’s installations, writer Euginia Tan provides eight inspired poems encapsulating the shields and triumphs against the labyrinthine nature of past and present obstacles. An immersive blend of art and text, Of Labyrinths & Shields pays tribute to a feminist, mythical landscape of higher beings fixated and burdened by earthly desires.

Haridas Contemporary is thrilled to announce its inaugural group exhibition, featuring new and existing works from seven Singapore-based artists: Esmond Loh (b. 1995), Gerald Tay (b. 1992), Jeremy Sharma (b. 1977), John Marie Andrada (b. 2001), Lyle Buencamino (b. 1978), Melissa Tan (b. 1989), and Oscar Xyh (b. 1999).

Ranging from paintings, wall-sculptures, and video work, the group show offers a preview of the gallery’s programming for 2023/24.

An opening reception will be held at the gallery on 16 Sep 2023, 4 – 7 pm. All exhibiting artists will be present.

Harids Contemporary is pleased to return to West Bund Art & Design with a key selection of Asia-Pacific artists from the gallery’s programme. Featuring: Melissa Tan, Khairullah Rahim, Jeremy Sharma, Popi Rahim and Meng Ju.
