Artist Talk and Reception
Anthony Chin (b. 1969) lives and works between Singapore and Thailand. He previously worked in the field of industrial design, before travelling the region extensively to focus on visual arts. His field work and excursions eventually led him into creating immersive site-specific works that poetically and conceptually respond to the architectural presence and history of sites. His production process is a result of both extensive historical research, and the utilization of common materials to invoke particular places with attention to their geopolitical implications.
The MET will launch the culminating exhibit of his two-month artist residency in Manila organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Manila and National Arts Council Singapore. We are inviting everyone to view his work and join us for an artist talk at 4:00 PM.
