Title

Márton Orosz

Description

While in residence Márton Orosz will further his research on György Kepes, the Hungarian-born artist, designer, educator and theorist who founded the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1967 as a “brainstorming laboratory” for artists and scientists to bridge the gap between art and science and address the social responsibility of design. He will explore the trans-regional connections of Kepes’ theories in Southeast Asia to shed light on the values shared by painters, designers, and architects who came into contact with Kepes and maintained a similar interest in the ecological consciousness and art’s capacity to trigger social transformations. Orosz plans to interview Choy Weng Yang, a seminal figure in the Singaporean art scene who visited Kepes in 1973, and to conduct archival research at the National Library and at the National Gallery Singapore.
