Acts of Voicing Artist Panel, Parkview Museum Singapore, 19 Jan, 3pm
Moderated by Dr. Michelle Lim, Acts of Voicing is a dialogue session which presents the experiences of Singapore artists negotiating fields of artistic production and concept of the ‘international’. The practices and approaches of the shortlisted artists focus on revealing perspectives about society, narratives and humanism. Such a focus seeks to raise important questions such as the artist’s role in society, and how they can create perspectives related to ideas of change, as well as relations between systems of thoughts, the arts and cultures. Featured artists include Ho Tzu Nyen, Jason Wee, Lee Wen and Shubigi Rao. More information.
