Bridging Through the Age : An Intergenerational Collaborative Exhibition, opened on Thursday, 13 January 2022, at Maya Gallery. Organised by Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya (APAD) as part of the association's 60th anniversary celebrations, the exhibition is supported by National Arts Council and held in conjunction with Singapore Art Week 2022.
Officiated by Mdm Rahayu Mahzam, Parliamentary Secretary at the Ministry of Health, on Monday, 17 Jan 2022, it was an opportunity for the artists to talk about their collaborative works and artmaking processes, and meet guests!
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.
Bridging Through the Age showcases the culmination of intergenerational collaborative efforts between each artist-pair while addressing the marginalised issues of age-segregation. Each body of work is a manifestation of a shared experience, of unlearning and relearning techniques and differences. In hopes of bridging the generation gap, the spirit of collaborative artmaking are evidences of these efforts. Evermore, as we are living in the “age of zenosyne”, our external realities are swiftly shifting perspectives while our moments crash like tidal waves. No other time is better than now for us to be engaged and shape our future through social cohesion. Through this exhibition, we ponder and slowly become aware of how we acknowledge the metaphors we live by and that the invisible threads of relationships are indeed the strongest ties that bind.
