Beyond Education, Beyond Community, Presentation by Milenko Prvački (Ex-Yugoslavia/Singapore), Senior Fellow, LASALLE College of the Arts, artist and founder, ART WALK Little India

Description

Milenko Prvaćki will speak about his becoming of a "local" artist, whose practice is painting, that relates both his work as an artist and as an educator to public space in Singapore. Having lived here for more than 28 years, he has initiated the ART WALK Little India in 2015 in his position as Senior Fellow at LASALLE College of the Arts. Working together with students and different stakeholders such as Somgapore Tourism Board (STB), Little India Shopkeepers' and Heritage Association (LISHA), Prvaćki reflects on the collaborative efforts of the previous editions as well as of the challenges of working in Little India and with its communities. How does Little India inform our ideas of public space in Singapore and what artistic practices can emerge in such a former colonial precint? Following which there is also the question of what kind of art education is needed for the next generation of artists to work in public spaces?
