Title

Online Workshop for Teachers: Performance Art and Education

Description

Are you a teacher who is intrigued by performance art, but not quite sure what it is? Curious about its educational potential? The workshop is exclusively offered to teachers in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Jointly organised by the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (NTU CCA Singapore) and Asia Art Archive (AAA), this workshop begins with a short introduction to the development of performance art in Singapore and material in the Lee Wen Archive by researcher Chương-Đài Vo. You will explore the role of the body in performance art under the guidance of artist Priyageetha Dia, and uncover different perspectives about performance and its visual documentation with Kai Lam from Singapore’s pioneering contemporary art collective, The Artist Village. In addition, Engaging with Performance Art through the Lee Wen Archive – A Resource Guide for Educators, developed by NTU CCA Singapore and AAA, will be launched during this workshop. Taking the Lee Wen Archive as a point of departure, the Guide presents suggested approaches to using performance art in the classroom.

The Lee Wen Archive continues to be digitised through a collaborative project initiated by NTU CCA Singapore in 2017 with AAA, and National Gallery Singapore.
