Like Monet and Giverny or William Hopper and New York, certain artists are famous for transporting viewers to certain places with their works. This summer, Sundaram Tagore Singapore is exhibiting a travel-inspired group show designed to do just that—to viscerally visit different parts of the world through fine art.

Titled Being There, the exhibit is running from June 5 to July 19 in the gallery’s Gillman Barracks space and showcases the works of five different artists, focusing on everything from ancient architecture to current events. Comprising the five are Nathan Slate Joseph, whose sculptural art often speaks on issues of globalization, immigration, and climate change; Ricardo Mazal, whose painting-photography hybrid works examine the burial rituals in Germany, Mexico, and Tibet; Kenro Izu, who captures the world’s most important religious sites in platinum-print photographs taken by a 136-kilogram, custom-built Deardorff camera; Robert Polidori, who hauntingly considers the passage of time through architectural photography; and Steve McCurry, whose much-awarded photographs document human tragedies and joys worldwide, often in areas of civil conflict.
