In writings on contemporary art in Singapore, the widely-held view is that the local contemporary art scene only started to develop with the emergence of The Artists Village in the late 1980s when it began to be a proliferation of new art practices such as installation, performance and process-based art. However, the lecture will show that its beginnings can be traced back at least three years before the formation of The Artists Village.
The years 1986 to 1988 was a critical period which had signalled a radical departure from the early 1980s.
Jeffrey Say has been teaching at LASALLE College of the Arts since 1997 and played a critical role in developing its art history programmes. In 2009, he designed the first Masters programme that focuses on Asian modern and contemporary art histories.
He is presently its programme leader. In his professional capacity, Say has given numerous public lectures on art history in museums, art galleries, schools and banks. He also conducts art history courses for working professionals. As an art historian, Say undertook the first extensive study of the history of sculpture in pre and post-war Singapore, for which he has done pioneering research. He is the co-editor of Histories, Practices, Interventions: A Reader in Singapore Contemporary Art (2016).
