Date: 8 June-30 September
Venue: NUS MUSEUM
Through the life and works of Malayan-Born-British artist Lee Sik Khoon, Bodies and Relationships reflects upon a number of episodes in modern Singapore art History-art education at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, the Ten-Men Art Group painting expeditions in Southeast Asia and artists’ overseas experiences as art students.
Under the theme of bodies, the exhibition surveys the development of Lee Sik Khoon’s art practice in comparative perspective to that of hi friend and fellow-artist, the late Ng Eng Teng, on whom NUS Museum has established firm art-historical research. At the heart of the exhibition also lies the notion of relationships highlighting ties and encounters in the artworld- between artists; painters and their painting subjects; and artworks.
