Date: 5 March 2010 -31 July 2010
Venue: NUS MUSEUM
An Exhibition of works of one of the Singapore's more influential Artists, the late Cheong Soo Pieng. Spanning the period from 1947 (Cheong's arrival to Singapore from China) to 1966 (after his trip from London), the exhibition emphasises on the archival and is presented to facilitate futurere search and projects on Cheong's practice and his influence on later generations of artists.Giving primacy to the assembling of materials- from artworks to a range of documentations, such as newspaper cuttings, publications video and oral interviews-the exhibition builds a preliminary perspective of Cheong Soo Pieng that is nuanced and which allows for multiple trajectories in later investigations.
A collaboration between NUS Museum and National Art gallery, Singapore, this is the first exhibition on Cheong Soo Pieng since his last solo exhibition 19 years ago.
