'Medium at Large explored the idea of medium in contemporary art, probing some of the most fundamental and pressing questions of art—its making, and also our experience, encounter and understanding of it. The exhibition at Singapore Art Museum (SAM) revelled in the rich expanse of materials that contemporary artworks can be made of, and from, with artwork media ranging from oil paint to rattan, human hair, bullet shells, as well as "dematerialised" media like sound and language. Encompassing 31 Southeast Asian and Asian contemporary artworks that were largely drawn from SAM's permanent collection, the exhibition examined the fluid nature of art as concept, process, method, and material.

This fully illustrated exhibition catalogue features five curatorial essays that reflect upon a range of issues surrounding contemporary art, such as the notion of time as a material, the relationship between painting and photography, the meaning of material(s), and how contemporary art is collected in a museum.' - from back cover
