The Future of Imagination
6 December 2003
Organized by Lee Wen and Kai Lam
Performance Art practice in Singapore has been marginalized over the last 10 years due to lack of support and lack of understanding for this form and have resulted in a dispersed practice without much critical understanding and discourse for this form. Despite all this, Singapore performance artists have persistently showcased their works in many international festivals and art events with critical acclaim. Some of the artists who patiently engaged their work in this form include Tang Dawu, Amanda Heng, Jason Lim, Lee Wen as well as various new generation artists, working individually or with groups such as the Artists Village and KYTV (Kill Your Television).
With the recent announcement that the National Arts Council will now allow funding of performance art after ten years of not funding, we would like to make an affirmative response by organizing this event to celebrate, acknowledge and welcome the pro-cultural move by the National Arts Council.
We also aspire to reinvigorate a positive situation for performance art practitioners in Singapore. This event aims to significantly re-define and to kindle interests to the practice of performance art. In doing so we hope this will raise a heightened awareness and appreciation for performance art as a legitimate art form in itself.
We appeal to seek out a more leveled understanding to this art form and to positively present it as a critical art practice along with the diverse cultural arenas in visual arts, theatre, dance, music and literature. The future of imagination” makes available a platform for the meeting of performance art practice, positive reception and discussion in Singapore.
