THE ART OF
International contemporary art from Hong Kong,
Singapore and the United Kingdom
at the Art Gallery, National Institute of Education,
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
A project funded by the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences,
led by the Department of Cultural and Creative Arts, The Education University of Hong Kong
in collaboration with the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
The Art of Creative Research features exciting artworks in a range of media, by fifteen international creatives from six influential Universities; The Education University of Hong Kong, the National Institute of Education (NTU) Singapore, and from the UK; the Arts University Bournemouth, the Royal College of Art, Homerton College (University of Cambridge), and University College London.
It is the first event in a collaboration that grew from a discourse about art practice as academic research, its nature and beneficial impact. The exhibition showcases and celebrates individual creative works, in a range of media, and additionally explores the impact that this creative practice has on enhancing the value of the student experience, on building connections between educational institutions, the creative industries, and local communities. The exhibitors share aspects of their simultaneous multi-identities as Artists/Designers, Academic Researchers/Scholars, and Educators/Teachers.
