Yang Tidak Lupa (“The one who did not forget”) is a prep-room project exploring the multiple ways of tracing feminine identities in Malaya and Singapore’s art world, from the 1960s to the 1990s. It inquires further on methods of (re)reading the ‘feminine body’ through their visual depictions and/or embodied realities, all deeply subjective and relational – while also holding space for future feminist interventions in Singapore’s histories of art. This prep-room DRILLS is a first activation of the space, where the open studio allows for public viewing and conversations with the curator, encouraging the threads of responses, deliberations, and discourse to enter the fabric of both the prep-room and public memory.
Venue: NUS Museum
