Singapore Contemporary Young Artists

Playing With & For The Community

Kampong Goodman!

Hey everyone!
Kampong Goodman closes in 4 days, so do come by if you have yet to see the wide range of art produced by the residents of Goodman Arts Centre!

Featured artists have exhibited their works internationally and won prestigious awards both in Singapore and around the world for their talent. These include:


I was helping out with setting up the exhibition and here are some interesting works you might want to travel over to see:

I absolutely love this piece. With shows such as Gossip Girl, 90210 and Pretty Little Liars filled with frenemies (friends who are also enemies), what better way to complete a world of backstabbing and betrayal than with a mailbox just for blackmails. Best friends for(n)ever!

Ron Wong’s commentary on the good, bad and ugly of society is honest yet non-judgmental. She manages to meld a seemingly traditional oil painting technique with a more comic, modern take on human expression. The contrast between her superb skill with her caricatures make this artwork makes it difficult to tear my eyes away from the piece, and her social commentary makes this artwork all the more identifiable with us.

This artwork is phenomenal– not only in size but in symbolism. In 1995, the artist Tang Da Wu met President Ong Teng Cheong in an Art opening at the now-demolished National Museum Art Gallery and delievered a message saying “artists are important”. Almost two decades on, this sculpture is still highly relevant and embodies a unanimous plea from the community to the rest of society as we artists strive continuously to find a place within the social fabric.

Do drop by if you haven’t done so; opening hours are from 10am to 8pm, with eateries, restaurants and malls within the vicinity to entertain you afterwards.

See you there!
