Islands tend to have complicated language situations; typically there will be an indigenous language and a handful of other tongues that have arrived either through trade or conquest. This exhibition of two painters from the island nation of Singapore, Milenko Prvacki and Ian Woo, seeks to examine the use of multiple language streams within contemporary painting. The exhibition will juxtapose recent works by these two painters to demonstration of the continuing vitality of painting as a medium of enquiry, and the relevance of Singapore as context for such enquiry. A full colour catalogue will be published by Peninsula Arts, with essays by curator Christopher Cook and international writer and critic Tony Godfrey.
