ABOUT AUDIENCE WITH AN ARTIST

Launched in August 2018, Audience with an Artist is a monthly artist talks programme alongside a cumulative broadsheet, hosted by the Singapore Arts Club. The goal of this programme is to introduce the visual arts to fresh audiences in an engaging, personal way, while representing the diverse practices of artists in Singapore. Each month, the Singapore Arts Club invites two contemporary artists from different generations and who have rather different practices to dialogue with a new audience that extends beyond the art industry. The language and content of this talks programme will be made accessible by noteworthy moderators from other industries, ranging from technology and design, finance and business, F&B and hospitality, to lifestyle and fashion. He or she will pose questions to the artists about their practice, inspiration, and their ways of seeing, thinking and being.


 

Piloted by the Singapore Arts Club, a sister brand of Yeo Workshop which has been engaged with the local community in public arts programming since 2014, Audience with an Artist presents opportunities to speak to artists, and to each other with intentionality and openness.

Each month, the Singapore Arts Club invites two Singapore-based contemporary artists — often from different generations and whose practices are even more varied — to sit down with a moderator whose own world extends beyond the visual arts. In this way, the programme opens the gates of the traditional artist talk to a new audience. This audience is one that may not know curatorial vocabulary nor the finer points of aesthetic theory, but is nonetheless interested in understanding brilliance wherever it may be found, especially within the halls of an art gallery.
