14 August - 26 September
Curated by Savita Apte, Grayscale! showcases the works of four disparate artists, Yanyun Chen, Bestrizal Besta, Madhvi Subrahmanian and Fiona Seow, living and working in South East Asia (Singapore, Indonesia). In doing so, the exhibition deliberately foregrounds the collaborative and cross-disciplinary conversations between these artists to reveal an underlying series of intellectually provocative micro-narratives, even as it engages with the larger questions of materiality and the act of mark making.
The very concept of collaboration especially intercultural and inter-community encounters is fundamental to the socio-cosmological worlds that make up South East Asia and account for its tradition as well as its contemporary cultural wealth. The artists featured in this exhibition should be seen within this framework of exchange as the protagonists of new dialogic potential.
The official opening happens on 21 August, Saturday where attendees can meet the artists themselves. With a wide variety of mediums from digital works to ceramics, breath-taking scenes to small intricate strokes, it is a visual treat for the eyes and senses.
