Join Artist-in-Residence, Newell Harry in conversation with National Gallery Singapore, Senior Curator, Russell Storer. This talk will focus on Newell’s practice and his work during time spent engaging with Vanuatu. Following the talk, Newell Harry and fellow Artist-in-Residence, Bani Haykal are organising a performance event fundraiser for the Singapore Red Cross Vanuatu Appeal.
Newell Harry's work is largely formed through a complex web of intercultural engagements bridging Australia’s east coast, the Vanuatu archipelago, South Asia, and his extended family’s home in Cape Town. His work will be in All the World’s Futures, the 56th Venice Biennale exhibition curated by Okwui Enwezor.
Russell Storer is Senior Curator at the National Gallery Singapore and former Head of Asian and Pacific Art at the Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia.
