The "Artist and Empire: (En)countering Colonial Legacies" exhibition is now on at the National Gallery of Singapore and I am in it! Kind of. The British High Commissioner to Singapore, Mr Scott Wightman and I recorded an audio tour for this exhibition and I think it was jolly good. So do go down to the National Gallery and check it out.
The exhibition looks at art associated with the British Empire and how it has been represented and contested.
We had a lot of fun recording our bits (audio bits, I mean). I also had to do a lot of homework reading up on the art I was supposed to be knowledgeable about.
Artist and Empire: (En)countering Colonial Legacies (in association with London’s Tate Britain) runs from 6 October 2016 to 26 March 2017, but wah lau eh, don't wait until next year then go lah. Fasterly go!
It is at the Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery, Level 3, City Hall Wing. Admission is S$15 for Singaporeans (got discount ok?) and S$25 for non-Singaporeans. For more information on the exhibition, visit www.nationalgallery.sg
