Panel Talk: Abstraction As: Object, Process, Rhythm, Force

Saturday, 27 April
3.00pm – 4.00pm

Marc Nair, Poet
Aya Sekine, Jazz Musician
Guo-Liang Tan, Visual Artist
Toh Hun Ping, Film Researcher and Artist

Moderated by: Jeremy Sharma, Artist


This panel considers how abstraction operates and surfaces within and across various practices and disciplines, such as music, poetry, film, and visual art.


Held in conjunction with Jason Martin: Meta physical, the discussion takes the traditions of abstract painting as a point of departure, and invites a different, broader elucidation of abstraction – in particular, what it can bring to varying modes and registers of perceiving, expressing, and producing realities.

Reel Thursday: Pollock (2000)

Thursday, 2 May
7.00pm - 9.15pm

In August of 1949, Life Magazine ran a banner headline that begged the question: “Jackson Pollock: Is he the greatest living painter in the United States?”


Both directed by and starring Ed Harris in the title role, Pollock examines the famous artist from his early roots in the New York art scene, his quick rise to international stardom and his subsequent, self-inflicted downfall.


Reel Thursday is a series of films organised in conjunction with the current exhibition, “Jason Martin: Meta physical”. Free admission. RSVP: Facebook | Email

Artist Talk: Manuel Ocampo, with Joyce Toh

Saturday, 18 May
4.00pm - 5.00pm

Join the artist and Joyce Toh, Senior Curator of Singapore Art Museum, elaborate on Ocampo’s furthered distinct visual language at STPI; where he continued to employ symbols and iconography that straddle between accessibility and ambiguity.


Multiple award-winning painter Manuel Ocampo (b. 1965, Philippines) is known for his frequent and strategic stylistic drifts in response to new contexts and subject matter. His shows are often constructed around contradictory tendencies, elaborating discrepancies between what a painting appears to be and how it behaves in relation to the structures that legitimate its appearance. He always embraces sudden shifts of style and emphasis. He paints, but doubt is created as to whether any particular medium is the solution.


The artist has been a vital presence on the international art scene for over two decades now; his works were presented in two of the most important European art events, Documenta IX (1992) and the Venice Biennale (1993). In the early 1990s, he participated in the iconic exhibition “Helter Skelter: L.A. Art in the 1990s” at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1992).
