Join Singaporean artist Michael Lee and British artist Bob Matthews on Friday, 18 May, 5pm for insights on their art practice, collaboration, and the utopian ideologies that influenced the creation of their new works during the exchange.

Utopias is a showcase of the personal reflections, research, and dialogue between these two artists who participated in AiRx 2011.

Michael Lee created a series of miniatures in the form of digital prints and etchings. These pieces pay homage to the utopian visions in creating iconic architecture; conversely to imagine a world following the extinction of the human race.

Bob Matthews researched on Singapore as a Garden City. Singapore’s ecology and landscape provided an alternative sense of aesthetics and environment for Matthews as he explored the relationship between atap, rain and glam trees, and urbanised Singapore.

The two artists also jointly created a series that captured small-scale personal utopias during their residency in London and Singapore.

Admission is free. The session is held in conjuction with the exhibition running from 18 May to 2 June 2012.
