Jaafar Latiff: Beyond the Familiar
This exhibition traces Jaafar’s artistic evolution from his pre-abstraction days to even a cursory engagement with early computer technology in the nineties. An important component of this exhibition also includes working with artwork conservators and family estates – issues that contribute to a better understanding and appreciation of local art. Ultimately this exhibition is a testament to one of Singapore’s pioneering modern artists whose works and legacy encourage us to go beyond our comfort zones in the quest for artistic excellence.
