Telah Terbit (Out Now)
Presented as a special exhibition of the Singapore Biennale in 2006, Telah Terbit re-looks at form and figure in Southeast Asian art during the 1960s to 1980s. The exhibition, curated by Ahmad Mashadi at the Singapore Art Museum, features works by Southeast Asian artists and art groups such as FX Harsono and Gerakan Seni Rupa Baru (Indonesia), Sulaiman Esa (Malaysia), Cheo Chai Hiang (Singapore), Pratuang Emjaroen (Thailand), Pablo Baens Santos and Kaisahan (Philippines). Belonging to a generation that emerged in the 60s and 70s, the works reflect the shifts in the art conventions and taste influenced by the historical and political contingencies of the period.
