Chương-Đài Võ , “Artist Collectives and Contemporary Art in Singapore” April 5th, 2018 from 4:30-6:00pm HEDCO building Rm 146

      Chương-Đài Võ oversees Asia Art Archive’s projects related to Southeast Asia. In addition to introducing some of the archival collections available online, she will discuss the current digitalization of the Lee Wen Archive. This collection contains the artist’s material about his practice as well as his documentation of dozens of performance art festivals from the last three decades. Vo will discuss the importance of archival material by focusing on two important artist-led initiatives that Lee has been a part of, The Artists Village and Future of Imagination, and two works that he has performed since the early 1990s, Journey of a Yellow Man and Anthropometry: Revision. These projects emphasize the importance of process, collective exchanges, and attention to the local to maintain spaces of resistance and criticality.
