Foreword by SAM Director Kwok Kian Chow Director, Singapore Art Museum Inaugurated in 1962, Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya, also known as Apad, is one of Singapore’s most established art associations. Apad: Tradition, Innovation and Continuity is the association’s 34th largescale art exhibition. The exhibition also marks the association’s 46th anniversary and celebrates the achievements over four decades. Apad has now grown into a thriving community of 71 artist members. The exhibition Tradition, Innovation and Continuity draws together works done by past and present Apad members and associates, forming a link from the 1960s till current time. This exhibition represents an effort by Apad to chart the art association’s history, and also to share with the public the artistic evolution of their current members. Works by pioneer Malay artists such as M Sawoot A Rahman and Aman bin Ahmad will be on display, alongside the younger members of the association. The anniversary is also an appropriate occasion to showcase the association’s collection of archival materials, including old newspaper clippings and exhibition catalogues.

Tradition, Innovation and Continuity not only plays an important role in bringing together the many generations of Apad members and supporters; it also serves to raise awareness of the association’s work. In its long history, Apad has contributed greatly to the promotion and development of the art scene in Singapore. The association has organised many significant activities in the past, such as the Pingat Apad art award scheme, started in 1974 and awarded locally to artists who have significantly contributed to the development of the visual art field in Singapore. Previous recipients of this award include some of Singapore’s best known artists – Liu Kang, Cheong Soo Pieng, and Georgette Chen. Apad is also active in the field of art education with its TUNAS Children Art Programme which seeks to nurture the artistic abilities of the young. My colleagues and I at the Singapore Art Museum would like to congratulate Apad’s on its achievements, and we are proud to collaborate with Apad in presenting this significant show.

Apad

Tradition, Innovation & Continuity

Foreword by Apad President Suhaimi Sukiyar Apad President The only Malay visual art society that has withstood for more than 4 decades, Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya or widely known as Apad has been playing an active role in providing opportunities in garnering the young Malay-Muslim art practitioners to the art scenes locally and internationally. Back in 1990 when I first joined Apad, I was just an art student eager to be included in the art scene. For me, it has been indeed a privilege to be able to showcase my artistic talent through exhibitions organised, sharing at art workshops and coffee talks with better known artists such as Mr Abdul Ghani Hamid, Mr S. Mohdir, Mr Abdul Rahman Rais and the late Mr Mohammad Din Mohammad. It has indeed been an inspirational journey, filled with awesome and memorable experiences that made me realise art is not just about brushes and canvas. There is more to art. It is about sharing ideas, understanding different media and most importantly networking. Apad has taught me that what I become is more important than what I have accomplished. I am proud to say that I have grown with Apad and it has indeed nurtured my confidence and guided me to be more than just a practising artist. Throughout the many years I have dedicated to Apad, I have witnessed many constructive changes catering to the needs of its members. Apad is now more open to members from diverse disciplines such as art and

event managers and administrators, film-makers, performance artists, designers, art editors and curators into its family. For me, Apad has evolved and passed from its pioneer to the younger generation of today. Despite the generation gap and odds, needs and changes and exposure to different ideas, the young and old are still able to work together closely in making Apad a stronger visual art society than before. Hence, Apad is honoured to be given an opportunity to be invited to showcase its first exhibition at Singapore Art Museum. It is a celebration of its 46 years of achievement of its artistic pursuit. A collaborative effort between Apad and Singapore Art Museum, this exhibition aims to highlight the historical development of Apad and yet promises an exhilarating body of works from diverse medium such as multimedia and installation arts. Besides showcasing art work from the pioneers to the younger generation, the exhibition is also dedicated to its former and late members, whose past contributions to Apad should not be forgotten. On behalf of Apad, I would like to congratulate all working committees and participants who are involved in making this exhibition a memorable and exciting milestone. I would also like to thank the families of our late artists for their generous support in lending the artworks for the exhibition.

Curator’s note Apad Curatorial Team

When the curators of the Singapore Art Museum proposed this exhibition to Apad, it generated a lot of excitement and interest from the association’s members. From the senior and established ones to the young and promising, they were eager to be part of a milestone event in the association’s history. An exhibition such as this is few and far between as it is a big-scale event held in a premier art space. As cocurators appointed by the association, we were given the responsibility to primarily, conceptualise the exhibition, and subsequently, select artworks spanning a period of forty-six years from every member of the association. The curatorial team worked in stages. First, to conceptualise the exhibition, and second, to set its objectives, which are to reflect the history of the association, document its present situation and chart the trajectory of its future. Considering these objectives, the team decided to present the exhibition in two parts: a historical overview and a contemporary section. The historical overview is delivered through the works of artists who have in the past made a mark in the Singapore and international art scene as well as within the history of the association. This component of the exhibition includes documents and recordings of Apad’s activities, events and publications extracted from the association’s archives. The contemporary section is intended to broadly represent current members, former members and artists who are affiliated with the association through collaborated projects and activities. This section consists of artworks drawn from this wide group and selected by the curatorial team.

All artworks were chosen based on the criteria that they were technically proficient, refreshing in ideas, innovative in the ways they are presented and expressing emotions that are genuine and readily shared by the community. As half of the exhibition consists of works sourced from the family of deceased former members, it was a challenge to locate some works as well as contact their custodians. At the end of the selection process, we have a collection of artworks that reflects the association’s philosophy and its members. Apad consists of diverse practitioners who paint, sculpt, install, assemble, or simply create images through various mediums and materials. We believe that we have selected artworks that best express the ideas and aspirations of the artists, be they recent art-school graduates, self-taught individuals or seasoned practitioners. This exhibition is an opportunity for participating artists to challenge themselves to produce works that exceed those in previous years. It is important for them to stay abreast and recognise that they can only achieve success through hard work. There are no short cuts. This exhibition is a fair reflection of art produced within the association, whose members come from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines, ideas and ideals. For the association to reach the next level, it is depending on every member to persevere, show commitment and contribute at a level that sufficiently and accurately portrays the association’s collective sensibility. When this is achieved, the association would then be ready to line up a new generation of promising members eager to contribute to local art and also take on the world.

Tradition, Innovation & Continuity

SAM Curator notes Ong Zhen Min Assistant Curator, Singapore Art Museum The term ‘tradition’ is usually defined as a set of practices transmitted across different generations, whereas ‘innovation’ is described as the act of introducing the new. Although general usage of these two words often sees them positioned as oppositional terms, they can in fact be said to share several similar points. Tradition is sometimes viewed as passive and unchanging, but in reality, the passing of traditional values from one generation to the next is an active and eclectic process in which customs and ideas from the previous generation are shifted through and assimilated – sometimes in new ways – by the next generation. Innovation, while espousing the new, rarely operates independently but arises when one attempts to transcend old boundaries. In trying to understand this relationship between tradition and innovation, and also how ideas are passed from the past to the present, the curators of this exhibition have adopted the display strategy of juxtaposing the works of the pioneer Malay artists with their younger contemporaries. Tradition, Innovation and Continuity offers us several entry points into this discussion. First, the exhibition gives us the chance to re-examine the roles the older artists have played in developing Singapore art, and also opens up discourse on how their

works may serve to stimulate fresh tangents of thought and art practices in the next generation of artists. Second, the exhibition allows us to appreciate the role of new media techniques and subject matter utilised by the younger artists during the conceptualisation and execution of their artwork. As reflected in the exhibition works, the increasing diversity in both technique and subject matter of recent works forms an interesting study of how the changing environment and concerns of the Malay artists working in Singapore have influenced their works to date. Each generation of artists responds to the works of the previous generation, in either studying its methods, or attempting to break away and form new grounds. How an artist adheres to, or diverges from, a set of practices and ideals is telling of certain affective changes in circumstances and mindsets, and which in turn, informs our overall understanding of the works produced. Tradition, Innovation and Continuity forms a critical meeting point for the Apad artists of different age groups to examine each other’s thoughts and processes, and also serves as an overall survey of the development of the association as a whole from the past to the present.
