Channels and confluences: A history of Singapore art
This book is the first fully-illustrated historical survey of Singapore art. From the rare paintings of Low Kway Song, a member of the Amateur Drawing Association founded in 1909, through the stylistically-important works of pioneer artists such as Cheong Soo Pieng, Chen Chong Swee, Chen Wen Hsi, Liu Kang and Georgette Chen, to the avant-garde and eloquent installations of artists associated with the Artists Village of the 1990s, this study highlights many historical and aesthetic themes and issues which are vital to understanding the development of the visual arts in Singapore.
