"The New Now" 2017 Gajah Gallery Seven Artist Group Show
The seven artists whose recent creations make up this exhibition have very little in common with each other, apart from the fact that they are ‘emerging’. Through a distinct and diverse practice however, Benedict Yu, Charlotte Lim, Gabrielle Tolentino, Kayleigh Goh, Kuat Zhi Hooi, Leonard Wee, and Wong Jia Yi grapples with the common issues of coming of age as an artist; taking the leap towards practicing fine arts as a vocation. To each their own, they are expanding the boundaries of an artistic practice at the while maintaining a presence in an increasingly pluralistic environment.
