The Winston Oh Travelogue Award is an annual grant that enables selected students from LASALLE’s McNally School of Fine Arts to travel abroad and develop their artistic research and practice. The award supports students in their graduate and postgraduate years of art education by offering them the opportunity to immerse themselves in a different environment and culture. The title of the exhibition refers to this immersion, which literally means the desire to travel, escape, or experience unknown territories.
This exhibition—a culmination of the students’ research upon return—presents works by the 10 recipients of this year’s Practice and Research awards.
Practice Award recipients and their destinations are Ann Yeyoon (Korea), Foo Hui Wen (Indonesia), Nguyen Viet Anh (Taiwan), Denise Yap Yun Xin (Taipei) and Benedict Yu Zhu Ye (Tibet).
Research Award recipients and their destinations are Gemma Kearney (Northern Ireland, UK), Justin Lim Sui Hsien (Indonesia), Didier Mathieu (Mexico), Siong Chung Hua (South Korea) and Eugene Tan Yan Zhi (Japan).
