Soo Bin - Life of Art, Art of Life
Soo Bin - Life of Art, Art of Life, is a much-anticipated programme featuring iconoclastic photographer and Cultural Medallion awardee Chua Soo Bin in a launch of a special publication and a two-venue exhibition at the PARKROYAL on Beach Road and Objectifs, Singapore’s leading space for photography.
Celebrating 90 years of Chua’s extraordinary life as a photographer, gallerist, patron and collector, both the book and exhibits span his early engagement with salon photography, his ascent as one of Singapore’s most sought-after photographers, his emergence as a gallerist-dealer in the 1990s and the creative processes of his practice including his magnum opus – his landmark portraits of Chinese ink masters. This programme underscores Chua’s experience and insights on photography and cutting-edge art, the complexities of the art market, as well as the life philosophies that have kept him driven, grounded and fulfilled.
