Online Talk: What Is Art Good For? by Chương-Đài Võ


Tuesday, 3 November 2020, 7 pm - 8.30 pm Lee Wen and many artists of his generation were known for using art to question conventions. To get a better understanding of his practice as well as what performance art meant to him and his peers, we will look at material from the Lee Wen Archive - the artist's notebooks and sketchbooks, documentation of his projects, and his activities as an arts organiser. This programme is jointly organised by Asia Art Archive (AAA) and NTU Centre for Contemporary Art (NTU CCA Singapore). The Lee Wen Archive was digitised through a collaborative effort initiated in 2017 by NTU CCA Singapore and the AAA, with National Gallery as an additional partner, to give access to culturally significant materials recording the arts of Singapore and beyond. BIOGRAPHY Chương-Đài Võ is a Researcher at Asia Art Archive, where she is supervising the acquisition of three archival collections: Lee Wen, Green Papaya Art Projects, and Manila Artist-Run Spaces. Her research and curatorial work focuses on collective platforms, ephemeral practices, social movements, and marginalised genealogies.
