The aim of this study is to examine how Singaporean artists construct, negotiate and perform their personal and artistic identities in relation to and in context of the dominant narratives about national identity generated by the State as well as the wider socioeconomic and political context affecting the art ecosystem in Singapore. We will examine artists’ excavations of forsaken histories, their formulation of alternative narratives and the tenuous equilibrium between subversion and submission as agents inscribed in a globalized field of practice that is rife with the pressures of market capitalism, identity discourses and power dynamics.
