BON à TIRER
Original Prints by Chen Shitong, April Ng, Tan Seow Wei and Zhang Fuming
23.11.2018 - 09.12.2018
AC43 gallery is pleased to present the exhibition, Bon á Tirer, which introduces our audience to the printmaking practices of 4 local artists, Chen Shitong, April Ng, Tan Seow Wei and Zhang Fuming. Bon á tirer, which in French means “good to pull” (or simply, “okay to print”), is a printmaker’s authorised trial proof that sets the approval for print and the quality to proceed for all other editions. With an exhibition title that embodies a playful reference to this professional term unique to the printmaker’s working process, the showcase is an eclectic mix of over 25 original prints by the 4 artists, including lithographs, woodcuts, collagraphs, etchings, mimeograph and silkscreen prints.
Beyond a mere presentation of works and concepts, the exhibition aims to highlight the respective artist’s printmaking approach, interest and technique, which is often multi-faceted and adventurous due to the wide range of techniques and surfaces available within the medium. The exhibition will open officially on 24 November, Saturday, with the artists in attendance. Join us in celebrating the bold endeavours of our local printmakers!
This exhibition is part of Bras Basah Complex Galleries’ Joint Art Week—participated by 10 galleries in Bras Basah Complex and supported by The National Arts Council—and will run from 23 November to 3 December 2018, 12 - 7pm daily. Admission is free!
