Mental health was very much in the spotlight during the pandemic, highlighting the importance of this sometimes hidden topic. A new exhibition by EYEYAH! at Temasek Shophouse explores this further through artworks from contemporary digital artists from Singapore and 10 other countries.
EYEYAH! Mental Health-themed Pop-up Museum
The mental health-theme exhibition curated by the EYEYAH! pop-up museum uses illustrations to provoke conversation around mental health. It will be at Temasek Shophouse, a social impact hub at Dhoby Ghaut, from 5 December 2022 to 4 February 2023.
The artworks explore what anxiety looks and feels like, its causes, positive and negative anxiety, how to overcome it and resilience.

The exhibition is developed by EYEYAH!, and co-presented by the DesignSingapore Council with the support of The James Dyson Foundation.
It will also be touring venues and schools in Singapore. It also includes supporting programmes like assembly talks and workshops for teachers. To date, the pop-up has toured Kult Kafe in Bukit Timah and Raffles Girls Secondary School.
“The pop-up exhibition and assembly talks by EYEYAH! helped to create more awareness on mental health challenges and prompt open conversation around the topic with students,” said Ms. Amalina Yahya, counsellor, Raffles Girls’ School.
Raising Awareness of Mental Health
The pop-up exhibition at Temasek Shophouse gives members of the public an opportunity to see the full collection of work in a central location, free of charge.
“As a social impact hub, we are delighted to partner with EYEYAH! to host their mental health pop-up and contribute towards raising awareness of mental health in this very approachable, visual manner,” said Ms. Yvonne Tay, Head, Temasek Shophouse.
