The Artling proudly project-managed Then Now Beyond, an exhibition of limited edition art and design pieces by some of the leading figures in the fields of contemporary art and design, commissioned on the occasion of The Hour Glass' 40th Anniversary.
The Artling worked to come up with an initial brief for the artists and designers, inviting them to explore and engage with differing perceptions of time. Then Now Beyond presents these findings with a series of commissioned objets d’art by American artist Daniel Arsham, Australian designer Marc Newson, Japanese design studio Nendo and Rotterdam-based Studio Wieki Somers, that seek to challenge our relationship with the past, the present and the future.
The objects included in the exhibition were selected by a committee made up of Mr Michael Tay, Group Managing Director of The Hour Glass, British architect Sir David Adjaye OBE, and international watch specialist Mr Aurel Bacs.
The exhibition opened in November 2019, and continues until January 2020. Click through for some images of the exhibition and the opening night!
