Coffee & Conversations: Amanda Heng

Join us in a conversation with Singaporean interdisciplinary artist Amanda Heng as she begins her residency at STPI. She is known to champion the representation of women by examining notions of the female body through her performances, her work with WITAS (Woman in the Arts Singapore) and various artists’ initiatives in the early 1990s. The 2010 Cultural Medallion recipient often collaborates with people of different cultural backgrounds and fields to juxtapose eastern and western values, and address gender roles in the fast changing multicultural landscape of Singapore. Her recent work focuses on the issues of history, memory, communication and human relationships in urban conditions.
