First Draft: Artist Talk
THEBOOKSHOW presents First Draft, a curated exhibition featuring new works by 8 nominated Singaporean artists / photographers that will be held at Objectifs, Centre for Photography and Film, on 29th Mar — 9th Apr 2017. First Draft is the place and time to figure out what a story needs to become. It’s a place to make mistakes, to try out ideas, to explore variations on existing ideas. Sometimes a rough sketch, other times a culmination of a dream, First Draft becomes a place to break things, and move on knowing they're broken, until we discover the way to fix what broke.
8 Singaporean artists — Sara Ho, Liu Ying, Marvin Tang, Sam Kang Li, Shyue Woon, Jovian Lim, George Wong and Lyn Low will be showcasing photobooks accompanied by a selection of photographic prints. These artists were chosen by 8 nominators whom THEBOOKSHOW believes represent the core of Singapore’s Art and Photography scene. Our nominators: Ang Song Nian, Emmeline Yong, Gwen Lee, John Clang, Kevin WY Lee, Pann Lim, Robert Zhao Renhui and THEBOOKSHOW.
Through this exhibition, we believe that our audience would have greater insight to how the book medium could help artists translate their projects into a format that is accessible to the masses. At the same time, supporting young and upcoming artists / photographers in the book creation process and in receiving an opportunity to gain exposure in the Singapore Art industry.
A series of artists talks will be held by the artists during the First Draft exhibition.
8 Apr, Sat 2.30pm — 4pm
Liu Ying, Sara Ho, Lyn Low, George Wong
9 Apr, Sun 2.30pm — 4pm
