Liu Kang at 90
Singapore Artist At Museum of Tolerance, Santa Monic, California, United States of America
On this Thursday May 8, the Museum of Tolerance will open the first solo exhibition of Liu Kang, one of Singapore's most famous artists, in the United States. The show will run through July 16.
The exhibition compromises 100 pieces of the artist's work, from oil paintings and pastels to pencil sketches. The works span seven decades of Kang's art career.
Liu Kang is known for pioneering the Nanyang (southern sea) school of painting that is characteristically reflective of the region's rich cultural heritage. His works also examine darker territory - a visual record of the atrocities of the Japanese Army in Malaya and Singapore during World War II.
Liu Kang was born in China in 1911. He spent his childhood in Malaya and Singapore, studied in China and graduated from the famous Xinhua Art Academy in Shanghai. His work then took him to Paris, where studied art for several years before returning to Shanghai College of Fine Arts to teach. He settled in Singapore in 1942 where he lives today.
Opening reception for the artist on Thursday at 5:30 p.m., Museum of Tolrance, 9786 West Pico Boulevard. For more information, call (310) 772-2529.

A painting exhibition by Tang Xue Zhen
59-61 Kim Yam Road, Singapore 239360
Tang Xuezhen was born in Kwantung Province, China, in 1971 and is an honours graduate of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art. She currently lives in Singapore, where she works as a picture restorer. Her professional experience has introduced her to a wide range of South East Asian art, as well as European paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and this exposure is evident in her own work.
There is also something of Xuezhen's pre-war, Shanghai cigarette-girl poster — a ‘period’ feel evoked by cheong sams and bobbed hair, with a hint of decadence lurking in the background; the delicate ‘young things’ that she so often chooses to paint may well be gangsters’ molls. But for all these exotic resonances, ultimately Xuezhen’s style is very much her own as she looks back to her Chinese roots — though she majored in oil painting, Xuezhen also studied Chinese brush painting and calligraphy and her knowledge of both these ancient traditions is clearly evident in her work.
Exhibition opens to public on 17 May, 2003
Gallery Hours:Monday - Friday 10.00am - 7.00pm
Saturday 1.00pm - 5.00pm closed on Sunday and Public Holidays
