Time Present closes with more than 64,700 visitors

March 2015 │ Singapore

“Art Works” is Deutsche Bank’s global programme dedicated to bringing contemporary art to as many people as possible – whether in the workplace or in public spaces.

As part of this programme, Time Present, the first ever exhibition of international photography from the Deutsche Bank Collection, was launched in Singapore in partnership with Singapore Art Museum. Time Present is part of an exhibition organised by the Singapore Art Museum – Still Moving: A Triple Bill on the Image.

Time Present shows how the medium of photography has changed from the 1970s until today, providing insight into contemporary history, in which photography radically changed our vision of the world. It also documents Deutsche Bank's journey from collecting young German art in the 1980s, to our global focus today which encompasses the art scenes of Africa, Asia, South America, Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean.

In October 2014, the exhibition opened exclusively to more than 400 guests, with Ms. Yeoh Chee Yan, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth as the guest of honour. Friedhelm Huette, Global Head of Art, Deutsche Bank was also in town to conduct a series of curator’s tours for top clients and visitors to the museum on the opening weekend.

Martin Liebscher, a renowned German photographer whose work appears in Time Present, was invited to Singapore by Deutsche Bank to conduct a series of talks and lectures in January 2015. During his visit, Liebscher spoke to Deutsche Bank staff at a lunch time speaker session in the office. He also hosted a photography masterclass and delivered lectures for over 150 photo and art enthusiasts from all walks of life at the Singapore Art Museum. Attendees were thrilled to meet him in person and were left inspired.

Time Present ran for four months until February 2015, and attracted a total of 64,721 visitors. During this period, workshops were also conducted for various schools, children of Deutsche Bank employees, and beneficiaries of the Bank’s charity partners, including Life Community Services Society and Yong-En Care Centre. 45 workshops were conducted for close to 1,500 children.

The exhibition will travel next to Mumbai, India and Tokyo, Japan in 2015.
