MEMORIES OF MY NAFA DAYS

Join a panel of key figures in the 80-year history of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), as they reflect on their experiences from the 1960s to 1980s as educators, students and artists. Hear the stories of Dr Ho Kah Leong, Lim Yew Kuan and Chng Seok Tin, as they explore archival material, pictures and personal notes from this formative era. Moderated by Teo Han Wue.

This panel is part of Art in Singapore: Evoking a National Art, a day of exciting programmes looking at Singapore art in the National Gallery Singapore's changing exhibitions and permanent galleries, as Singapore celebrates its 53rd year of independence. Click here to find out more (link)
