Due to unforeseen circumstances, the talk by Thierry Falise on Saturday, 18 May, at 2pm, has been cancelled.
However, the talk by Tay Wei Leng, author of Convergence, on the same day (Saturday, 18 May) at 3:30pm, is still going ahead.
Comprising 65 images, Convergence is an intimate look at segments of the Chinese community in Singapore and Malaysia by Singaporean artist Tay Wei Leng. The book questions and records the changes current generations experience as they grow increasingly distant from their grandparents’ homeland, as attitudes and values shift with each generation. It also looks at how this Chinese community has evolved with characteristics shaped by the co-dependent history, and social landscapes particular to Singapore and Malaysia.
In conversation with Ahmad Mashadi of the NUS Museum, Tay Wei Leng will discuss her process and research for the project, followed by book signings.
We look forward to you joining us at 51, Armenian Street, for the fascinating talk and booksigning by Tay Wei Leng.
