Artists from Southeast Asia feature in a London showing (28 October-8 November 2014) of a selection of works from Singapore’s One East Asia gallery.
In an event significantly focused on artists from the Philippines and reflective of a diversity of styles within that frame, artists from elsewhere in the area figure as well.
Alongside Philippine artists Andres Barrioquinto, Mark Lewis Higgins, Renato Orara and Mark Valenzuela, the selection presents works by Jane Lee,from Singapore and Anchalee Arayapongpanit from Thailand.
Guest curator Loredana Pazzini-Paracciani presents photography and video installations by Anida Yeou Ali from Cambodia, John Clang from Singapore, Prapat Jiwarangsan from Thailand and Sherman Ong from Malaysia. The photo and video art chosen by Loredana Pazzini-Paracciani explores themes informed by diasporic experiences of the artists represented in the show.
The evening programme includes comments from Ambassador Enrique A Manalo of the Philippines and a conversation between art critic Vivienne Lawes and Mark Lewis Higgins. View catalogue
