AU: 4.0
Programme: ADM

This course situates the work of a series of Singapore contemporary visual artists and art groups in larger contexts of Southeast Asian cultural production - from the 1950's to today. This course starts with the ways Southeast Asia has been imagined by Singapore artists, (as seen, for example from the perspectives of The Nanyang School painters in Singapore in the 1950's). It moves on to explore the more tangible connections, questions and contestations arising between artists and arts groups in Singapore and Southeast Asia, from the 1950's to the present. Students are reminded that ADM rules on attendance and plagiarism are in operation within all ADM courses as laid out in the ADM Student handbook
