Women Artists in Singapore: Perspectives on Creative Processes and Education By Tang Ling Nah

Women Artists in Singapore: Perspectives on Creative Processes and Education is a series of forums that will feature various female artists in Singapore's arts scene. Each artist will share about her creative processes through her artistic works/activities and present her perspectives about arts education. The speaker of this second session is Tang Ling Nah.

Tang Ling Nah is a Singapore-based artist, independent curator and art educator. She is inspired by urban transitory spaces, and creates charcoal drawings, book art, installations, performances and videos to explore buildings, places and architectural spaces as communicators of stories about life. In 2008, she represented Singapore in the 2nd Singapore Biennale and also exhibited a work in the 11th International Architecture Biennale in Venice (Singapore Pavilion). She is the Artistic Director of the Drawing Out Conversations exhibitions series that explores contemporary drawing. It has been presented in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taipei. In 2013, she curated 床事―A Thing or Two about the Bed, a visual arts exhibition that explores the idea of the bed at FOST Gallery, Singapore. Her accolades include the Singapore National Arts Council’s Young Artist Award (Art) 2004, the Juror’s Choice, Philip Morris Singapore-ASEAN Art Awards 2003, and the Della Butcher Award 2000.
