Painting Today

Painting Today, brings together 30 artists from the Modern Arts Society in an inhouse curation to explore the relevance of painting in the Singapore contemporary art scene. The exhibition will cover a diversity of painters from the second-generation to the emerging artists, bridging the generational gap through similarities and differences in subject matter, genres, dexterity and conceptual.

While the legacy of the traditional painting is being slowly anachronized and marginalised in the rise of the digital era, it is no longer the distinction between the old and the new. Painting’s inextricable relationship with tradition and the impact of digitalized push forward by the pandemic, served not as boundaries but opened a new passage in diverse studio practices and contemporary visual vocabulary. 

The program includes artist talk, art workshop and short videos online.
