SIF Connects! London is a celebration of friendships, partnerships and the strengthening of relationships between Singaporean and British communities through art. We launched the London-leg of the Disappearing Moon exhibition, featuring individual and collaborative works of Singaporean Genevieve Chua and Briton Emma Critchley which were conceptualised during their respective residences in Singapore and London. Their artist-in-residence exchange or AiRx programme is a collaborative initiative between the Singapore International Foundation and British Council for connecting Singaporean and British communities through art, and Genevieve and Emma are our second pair of cultural ambassadors.
Disappearing Moon premiered in Singapore at the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore on 17 January 2013. This fourth edition of SIF Connects! London takes on added significance with the appointment of long-time friend of Singapore, Mr Chris Davies, as the SIF representative who would partner us in reconnecting and growing the Friends of Singapore community in the UK.
