Join NTU CCA Singapore Curator-in-Residence Erin Gleeson and Artist-in-Residence Luke Willis Thompson, winner of New Zealand’s acclaimed “Walters Prize” in 2014, as they tackle issues around the histories of objects and its nature in this dynamically led discussion. Gleeson will introduce the practice of late Cambodian artist Svay Ken (1933-2008) and the significance of his paintings. Thompson will present recent projects on looking at the vexed nature of objects and their memorialisation.
