To mark the 60th Anniversary of the association; Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya (APAD) would like to present an exhibition that represents the crux of the association, through an intergenerational collaborative effort that bridges the creative minds of our artists.
Addressing and overcoming marginalized issue of age-segregation, Bridging Through the Age showcases the conclusive works of nine pairs of intergenerational artists. Each body of work is a manifestation of shared experience and expertise while embarking on a fantastical journey of unlearning and relearning differences and bridging the ‘generation gap’ through the spirit of art making. Evermore as we are living in the “age of zenosyne” and our external realities are swiftly shifting perspectives while our moments crash like tidal waves, no other time is better than now for us to be engaged and shape our future through social cohesion.
Through this exhibition we ponder and slowly become aware of how we acknowledge the metaphors we lived by and that the invisible threads of relationships are indeed the strongest ties that bind.
