“Moving Memories” feature local artworks in dioramas, placed in a mobile container to represent NAFA’s nomadic past in the Singapore history. The installation will move around various locations in Singapore, including The Esplanade, Singapore Conference Hall and The Star Vista.
Cheong Soo Pieng’s ‘Drying Salted Fish’ is the one of the artworks found on Singapore’s fifty dollar bill. Now, you can literally ‘walk’ into the picture, take a photo and upload it on social media for all to see. This is part of an exhibition Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts has put up for one of its 80th anniversary celebratory events. NAFA invited two of its alumni members, 51-year-old Chuan Yeo and 30-year-old Deric Shen to capture unique characteristics of Singapore’s local culture and heritage through this exhibition.
