President's Young Talents 2018 exhibition
The Singapore Art Museum (SAM) is proud to present the 7th edition of the ‘President’s Young Talents’ exhibition featuring five Singaporean contemporary artists – Yanyun Chen, Weixin Quek Chong, Debbie Ding, Hilmi Johandi and Zarina Muhammad.
The ‘President’s Young Talents’ is the nation’s only mentoring, commissioning and award programme which recognises promising Singaporean artists aged 35 and below, whose practices chart new dimensions in contemporary art.
The five artists will present newly commissioned artworks that span painting, sculpture, performance and new media, developed under the guidance of a curator-mentor panel made up of David Chan, Roger Nelson, Zaki Razak, Grace Tan and Jason Wee.
This exhibition will be the last held within museum’s premises before both buildings close for a major revamp, and SAM undertakes pop up exhibitions in neighbourhood venues.
So be sure to head down to SAM at 8Q to view the finalist artworks and cast your vote for the People’s Choice award, from now till 25 November!
