Re-connecting: selected writings on Singapore art and art criticism
Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, 2005 - Art - 127 pages
Liu Kang (1911-2004) and Ho Ho Ying (1936-) are important painters in Singapore's art history. But along with their creative practices, they also played key roles as art writers and critics. Their opposing positions on modernism and abstraction, and the debate and discussion generated between them, both shaped and reflected Singapore's art scene through the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s and well into the 1980s. These selected writings, mostly drawn from the Chinese-language press, vividly document important phases in Singapore's art history.
