DIASPORA is a visual art exhibition helmed by Artblovk pop-up gallery and co-curated by Lim Cheng Tju. DIASPORA builds upon a narrative of the evolving conditions of visual artists in a time of turbulence and uncertainty, privacy issues and how they reach out to a changing audience. It is an invasion and a blurring of public and private space through art interventions.
Featuring Illustrators and visual artists such as A Good Citizen (Dan Wong), Comet Girl (Cherie Sim), and other young local talents, DIASPORA investigates the movement of visual art from natural to digital territories and into uncertain spaces.
Held at Bras Basah Complex in the Basheer Graphic Books, itself a cornerstone for educators in the arts and creative industry, DIASPORA takes over a part of the space and invites audiences to participate in discovering art and its mediums to begin a conversation on the nature of visual art.
