Singapore Contemporary Young Artists

Playing With & For The Community

Reading Room – Lee Kong Chian Reference Library, Level 8 Promenade (Till 10 April 2011)

Reading Room

Venue: Lee Kong Chian Reference Library, Level 8 Promenade
Exhibition Period: 10th March – 10th April, 2011

Reading Room is a collaborative project to create access to art publications from the Southeast Asian region to the Singapore public. In spite of geographical proximity, publications by artists, art groups, organisations and even institutions are more often than not difficult to locate, owing in part to a lack of knowledge of their existence. A limited survey of publications have been amassed that is far from exhaustive, and assembled in the library specifically for public browsing purposes, with the hope that such an exchange can and will continue, and where our understanding of contemporary art practices in Southeast Asia that have relatively similar contexts might deepen.

Reading Room is made possible by, and with thanks to, the following persons:

Calvin Chen
Ade Darmawan
Roslisham Ismail ‘Ise’
Nur Hanim Mohamed Khairuddin
Josef Ng
Lim Kok Boon
Narawan Pathomvat ‘Kyo’
Eileen Legaspi-Ramirez
Richard Streitmatter-Tran
Farah Wardani
Jason Wee
June Yap
