New Zealand born artist Tiffany Singh’s multi-disciplinary approach
centers around arts, education and well-being. Her three-month residency
elevates Bangkok 1899 as an immersive Social Practice hub, exemplifying a
new contemporary art paradigm to enable women artists, who are also
mothers, to live and work in a supportive residency environment.
Her work will explore the challenges faced by women artists with
research based on traditional practices translated into contemporary
artworks. Collaborations will map out the factors that affect women's
participation in various artistic disciplines. This will provide a
narrative around the technical skills related to producing “women’s”
work, while at the same time providing an opportunity to learn about and
to address issues that affect women in general. Singh will exhibit this new work at Bangkok 1899’s Grand Opening on September 1-2, 2019.

expectations, family obligations and how being a minority voice within
the art world influences our work.

Taiwan society. Chang uses her practice to exchange traditional
techniques to the contemporary concept. This enables her to reflect on
the deep foundations in the Chinese art tradition, global history and
the newly formed Internet politics of this.
iconic works use images that signifying power from mainstream media and
the Internet. She re-examines conditioned realities and deconstructs
them into critical comments about the status of humans in an era largely
dominated by virtual and digital worlds.
