“The 1950s and 60s were not just post-war decades for Singapore, but also marked a time of transition from colony to independent nation-state. How were artists from this period responding to changes and developments in society around them? How was art practised and why was there a need and purpose for the formation of art societies? Come hear from a wide range of scholars as well as accounts from artists themselves on art-making during these significant years in this forum and learn about the history of art societies and interesting aspects of Singapores artistic heritage.” LINK
