Educational platform EYEYAH! is holding a pop-up museum consisting of 40 artworks at Temasek Shophouse from Dec 5 to Feb 4, 2023. 

Titled “Look Deep”, the programme intends to create more awareness on mental health challenges and prompt open conversation around the topic.

Made by contemporary digital artists from Singapore and 10 other countries, the artworks explore what anxiety looks and feels like, its causes, positive and negative anxiety, how to overcome it and resilience.

To date, the pop-up museum has been held at Kult Kafe in Bukit Timah and Raffles Girls Secondary School, and will later visit Loyang View Secondary School, Northlight School and Spectra Secondary School.

Tanya Wilson Chua, education lead of EYEYAH! highlighted the need to approach mental health from a new perspective. She said: “Visuals speak directly to the sub-consciousness and trigger viewers to slow down, observe, analyse and interpret each image to see how it might relate to their own lives.”

Beyond the pop-up, animations of the artworks are being showcased at ArtScience Museum’s MENTAL: Colours of Wellbeing. The EYEYAH! Magazine, featuring the full collection, is also being distributed at art and design institutions such as National Gallery Singapore, Tate Modern and Design Museum London.

Admission to the pop-up is free. Opening hours are 8am to 9pm on Mondays to Fridays and 11am to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
