Genomic Expressions

Genomic Expressions exhibition asks the question 'What does genomics mean to you?' to those who work at the Wellcome Genome Campus. Some answers may make you smile, some are heart-warming but all encourage us, the viewer, to reflect on our own answer to the question.

THE DIASPORIC BRUSH Modern Singaporean Art

Sat 20 January - Sun 1 April

Wolfson College

THE DIASPORIC BRUSH Modern Singaporean Art combines paintings from the Lee Seng Tee Collection of Wolfson College with the works of six young artists of the Siaw-Tao Chinese Seal-Carving, Calligraphy and Painting Society. The exhibition explores changing meanings of ink and identity in Singapore. The term ‘diaspora’ may be dated, but Sinophone scholars such as Shih Shu-mei have contended that participating in cultural projections forms a link with China that maintains a sort of diasporas identity. In a medium with as much cultural baggage as Chinese ink, successive generations of Singaporean artists had done just that, resolving a dialectic between citizenship and diaspora. This exhibition presents the Nanyang flavour of Singaporean Modern Art in this light, with the Nanyangs of two generations put into sharp contrast.

Wolfson Fine Arts presents this exhibition in association with The Siaw-Tao Chinese Seal-Carving, Calligraphy and Painting Society, and acknowledges the support of Leicestershire County Council for the loan of Paysage Chinois by Cheong Soo Pieng from their permanent Collection.
