新‧创艺 - Creativity in Pulses

Art / Curation

2017 / Singapore / Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre

 

Themed Creativity in Pulses, this exhibition of contemporary art at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre was curated and designed by Zarch Collaboratives to bring fresh perspectives to the way we look at ourselves and our identity as Singaporean Chinese. The theme evokes a culture that straddles both newness and tradition, embracing fresh perspectives yet acknowledging a deep rootedness in heritage – identity in flux, in constant reinterpretation, in continual evolution. The works on show speak of new opportunities, new methods, and new ways of seeing, seeking to re-examine aspects of our culture, values, community, and heritage through different lenses. Drawing from a wide spectrum of artists at the cutting edge of Singapore’s creative scene including filmmakers, product designers, graphic artists, photographers and installation artists, the exhibition hopes to provoke thought and inspire conversation through each artist’s unique parsing of aspects of our identity.
