Free Lecture - A Contemporary Art Practice from a Trans-Asian Perspective with Artist Ren Zi
2:30 – 4PM
Ren Zi is a contemporary artist of Singapore. He studied psychology and worked as a commercial writer before he devoted himself full-time to the arts. Figurative characters in his fantastic drawings are created in digital mediums and then printed on various media such as acrylic, aluminium and bamboo paper. Ren Zi is a product of Singapore, exposed to its multi-ethnic geo-political environment as well as global currents in high art and pop culture. Professor Kyunghee Pyun will open a dialogue with this quirky artist who is also partly otaku, partly science geek, and partly utopian dreamer.
