Scholars & Ink features artists from the extended community of the National University of Singapore, graduates and academics across faculties of the University. The title of the project plays on the association Chinese ink has long had with a literati culture in Chinese history. Scholars & Ink proposes ways of seeing modern and contemporary ink painting through the classical “Six Principles” and “Six Essentials” of Chinese ink paintings espoused by Xie He (479 – 502) and Jing Hao (c. 855 – 915) respectively. The diversity of artistic approaches, highlighted by their purposeful and varied references to ink conventions and contemporary strategies, is significant as an entry point into the longstanding ink tradition and its practice today, marked by simultaneous continuities and transformations.

The Singaporean artists featured in the exhibition include:
Dr Tan It Koon (BSc (1st Class Hons), PhD, MCB)
Dr Ho Chee Lick (Snr Lecturer, Dept of Chinese Studies)
Yeo Shih Yun (BBA, 1998)
Hong Sek Chern (MA, SEA Studies)
Ling Yang Chang (BA (Econs), 1987)

The exhibition runs till August 2015.
