All that is Changing an International Exhibition and Collaboration
Exhibition dates: 4th - 27 April 2017, Monday - Friday 9am - 4.30pm
Address: Australian High Commission, 25 Napier Rd, Singapore 258507
This exhibition seeks to illuminate the histories and contributions of two artists - Australian Kathleen O’Connor and Chinese-born Singaporean Georgette Chen - who hailed from different worlds, yet bucked the expectations of the time to forge careers in art between the wars. It will also reflect on our attitude to change, and our preoccupation with the new, and what impact that has on our propensity to honour what has come before.
The exhibition features a new body of work by Jo Darvall and Shih Yun Yeo. There are paintings, drawings and large scale digital UV print on silk as well. The largest painting will stretch for 4.8metres across the sweeping wall, like a Chinese scroll, and the works will feature the kinds of mark making and use of pigment observed in the work of both O’Connor and Chen.
