Title

Koh Nguang How

Description

Koh Nguang How is an artist and independent researcher on Singapore art. His project, Singapore Art Archive Project @ Centre for Contemporary Art (SAAP@CCA) encompasses material touching the Singapore art scene from the 1920s until the arrival of the Internet. An entirely material archive with most documentation provided by the artist himself, this project developed as a response to the lack of a national art archive.

His residency at NTU CCA Singapore enabled public access to the archive for an extended period of time with a wealth of material showing extensive regional exchange as well as many international exhibitions in Singapore, debunking the myth of an isolated art scene .The ensuing dialogue and conversation with Koh are key when visiting this collection. Here the role of the artist is the role of cultural memory keeper.
