In collaboration with the School of Art and Design (SOAD) Foundation Programme, Year 1 students were invited to visit the exhibition White Space: A Legend, the Lady and the Voyager, where they were given the opportunity to interact with artists Fitri Ya’akob and Vimal Kumar. The students participated in dialogues about the different modes of artmaking and were enaged in conversations about the artists' motivations and creative process.
Moderated by Dr Bridget Tracy Tan, Director of ISEAA and Art Galleries at NAFA, the dialogue provided a platform for students to connect with fellow young artists.
Prior to the tour, students were given a set of exercises to help them think about the works presented in the exhibition. Themed "People, Cultures, and Beliefs," the students were encouraged to think about the importance of personal histories in Southeast Asian artmaking.
