Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya (APAD)'s 50th Art Exhibition, Rewang, opened on Friday, 22 October 2021, at Maya Gallery's new space. The private opening event was officiated by Mr Peter Ho, chairman of National Gallery Singapore. Formed in 1962, APAD (Association of Artists of Various Resources) is a non-profit society of Malay artists in Singapore, with the aim to promote an appreciation of visual arts and develop the artistic talents of its members, through the organisation of exhibitions and programmes. APAD has played a significant role in contributing to the local art scene.
Rewang is described in the Malay society as a communal and social activity during the preparation of kenduri or feastful ceremonies and festivities. In the true spirit of "rewang", and marking APAD’s 50th exhibition, 18 members gather in the spirit of collectivity and togetherness after periods of isolation since the pandemic.
