Following on from an exhibition
Following on from an exhibition on the ‘First Arts Council’ (2011), and the more recent exhibition ‘Situationist Bon Gun’ in 2013, this double bill exhibition will assemble several installations as critical gestures toward contextual art making through the generations.
The first exhibition will feature two large installations titled: ‘Hak Tai’s Bow’ and ‘Brother’s Pool’. An homage to pioneering art principals, Lim Hak Tai and Brother Joseph McNally, the works are more than reflection or portrait. The installation provides an intriguing analogy with which we might evaluate both our ways of seeing and making, as receivers and art makers through generations.
The second ‘Our Children’ is a showcase of works that illustrate Da Wu’s teaching experiences, comprising mostly installation pieces. A customised scaffolding of six metres across will be constructed to facilitate performances by Station House da Opera and interactive dialogues for the exhibition. This second showcase will be accompanied by the Institute of Southeast Asian Arts’ fourth instalment of the Southeast Asian Art Clinic in collaboration with the School of Art & Design (SOAD).
This session endeavours to stimulate dialogue from Da Wu and other practitioners in the field, situating their practices against historical and political landscapes of their time while investigating the agency of an artist. Student presenters from SOAD will in turn challenge themselves and analyse the artist’s installations through expression, language and form.
In conjunction with this exhibition, there will be an instalment of an ongoing Art Teachers’ Seminar that has evolved through a series of dialogues since 2000, when the artist first joined the National Institute of Education (NIE).
There will also be a series of workshops and talks by the artist on how an artist works and thinks. Sessions can be arranged upon request. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
