Playing With & For The Community
INSTINC organizes SQUARES INVASION – The 50×50 Painting Show 2011 (20-31 OCT 2011), aimed to promote painting as an art form which seems to be forgotten as the art scene embraces more video and installation works and to create a platform for talented up-and-coming local painters to showcase their works and get recognition & exposure through INSTINC PRIZE and PEOPLE’S PRIZE.
The selection of the artworks will be carried out by the Jury composed by experts and important professionals of the art scene :
Milenko Prvacki – Dean, Faculty of Fine Arts, LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts, Singapore
Kelley Cheng – Creative Director of The Press Room
Kuros Nekouian – Founder of LW44, Munich Germany
Shih Yun Yeo – Founder of INSTINC
