A MODERN SENSIBILITY
ART STAGE SINGAPORE 2017
"JUT OUT: CHEONG SOO PIENG AT 100"
Cheong Soo Pieng is one of the most versatile Asian modern artists of his generation, ceaselessly experimenting with material, technique and style throughout his life. Presenting a dozen rare and previously unexposed mixed media relief paintings and sculptural works, JUT OUT: CHEONG SOO PIENG AT 100 showcases - in this centennial year of the artist’s birth - the unbridled originality and creativity of the artist’s oeuvre between the mid-1960s and mid-1970s.
"A MODERN SENSIBILITY"
A curated exhibition of works by fifteen modern artists from Southeast Asia, A MODERN SENSIBILITY presents a body of lucidly inventive artworks from these artists who are underrated by the art market in general. All but one born in the first half of the 20th century, these artists have worked largely under the radar, persevering against personal circumstances, trends, ignorance and historical biases to formulate their own visions and articulations of key aspects of modern life during their times.
