2019 marks the third year of Singapore’s participation in Clifford Chance’s international Pride Art events. The exhibition is held in Clifford Chance Singapore, in collaboration with Art Porters Gallery, from 27 May to 16 July.
LGBTQ-friendly Singaporean artist Johann M Fauzi defines otherness through re-appropriation and displacement of his subject matters and painting style. The exhibition comprises seven oil paintings, crafted in a western colonial style, juxtaposed with Malay titles and personal narratives, which are framed in the artist’s own creations, inspired by specific classical museum frames. Besides ‘otherness’, the paintings also question provenance and identity. The paintings were exhibited in April 2019 at the Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore, within the installation 1820 to 1920, which received accolades from Singapore Art Museum curators and other art luminaries.
Venue: Clifford Chance Singapore. Please contact Guillaume at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in visiting the exhibition.
