HELP US GROW THE SG ART BOOK LIBRARY
SGABF is accepting submissions to the SG Art Book Library, a catalogue of published print materials that explore the creative possibilities of art book publishing to generate meaningful discourse. The Library believes in the importance of representing the diversity of our community, capturing the energy, vision, and voices of artists and practitioners.
Our collection prioritises art books that focus on sociopolitical concerns in Singapore and around the world—gender inequality, racial discrimination, human rights, LGBTQ+ issues, political activism, intersectional feminism, economic and environment struggles, and many more. We want to provide a safe, accessible space for art books that might not otherwise find their way into institutional collections.
Existing as a virtual space below, and occupying various physical spaces in Singapore over the course of the year, the Library is free and available for all to browse.

BEYOND WILDERNESSChua Chye Teck
Published by Epigram Books, 2016
Photographer Chua Chye Teck explores the fast-disappearing natural wilderness in Singapore through a series of black and white photographs. Using the forest structure to express the idea of emotional layers, his photographs are a reflection on memory and transformation and present the dualities of isolation and the unknown. The book charts the artistic and spiritual journeys of the photographer, and is as much one man’s personal encounter with nature as it is a social commentary about the fast-changing landscape of modern society.
