How does a multidisciplinary creative straddle both the aesthetic and commercial worlds while developing a distinctive style?
Join Jackson Tan as he shares his creative journey as an leading-edge artist, designer and curator from Singapore. Through notable case studies such as MTV, the SG50 logo and ArtZoo, he will discuss how he has managed to execute a range of creative projects across differing capacities, mediums, partnerships and scenarios. He will also provide valuable insights into the evolution of the Singapore creative landscape, especially on how creative practice and works move through time and across shifting landscapes, meeting different audiences and making new meaning along the way.
To encourage free and frank exchange, this session will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
