随艺聊 Celebrating SG Artists

随艺聊 Celebrating SG Artists is a 7-episode video series that archives the contributions and journeys of seven second-generation artists in Singapore.

These artists are renowned in various aspects – it is no longer a question of who they are or what they do, but about what they have achieved and how they have influenced almost every facet of our contemporary scene. The featured artists – Goh Beng Kwan, Ho Ho Ying, Lee Hock Moh, Sarkasi Said, Siew Hock Meng, Tay Chee Toh and Tong Chin Sye – are often reputed as teachers of their respective crafts, creators of works collected by national institutions and artists with international showcases.

This series brings us down memory lane to understand, appreciate and be inspired by their lives, filled with determination, passion and persistence to make a mark in Singapore’s art history.

Episode launch schedule will be updated here soon!
