Led by Low Sze Wee (Director, Curatorial, Collections and Education, National Gallery Singapore), this tour takes you through the curatorial framework and key themes of Artist and Empire: (En)countering Colonial Legacies.
Organised in association with Tate Britain, Artist and Empire: (En)countering Colonial Legacies explores the different ways in which the British Empire has been represented and contested through art. It adopts a contemporary perspective to critically examine art produced in relation to the colonial experience, and the rise of modern art in former colonies in Southeast Asia, India and Australia – with a special focus on Singapore and its enigmatic founder, Sir Stamford Raffles.
