Special Issue for Roslisham Ismail aka Ise
Saturday, 6 March 2021, 2.30 – 3.30pm
This special issue of SentAp! dedicated to the late and cherished artist Roslisham Ismail aka Ise was published on the occasion of his solo project Campur, Tolak, Kali, Bahagi, Sama Dengan (Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide, Equals) in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore respectively. Co-founded in 2005 by curator Nur Hanim Mohammed Khairuddin and Ise, sentAp! fostered for ten years writing about contemporary art in Malaysia and the region. Informed by the social nature of Ise's artistic process, his penchant for connectivity and exchanges, this special issue embraces the dialogic form.
The publication will be introduced by Nur Hanim Mohammed Khairuddin (on Zoom) together with Anca Rujoiu and Russell Storer on-site.
Campur, Tolak, Kali, Bahagi, Sama Dengan, curated by Anca Rujoiu, is on view at NTU CCA Singapore during the Singapore Art Book Fair weekend from 5 to 7 March 2021.
