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.

VIRTUE & VIRILITY

Lee Chang Ming

Published by Nope Fun, 2019
Virtue and Virility presents a series of images and quotes taken from various gay networking mobile apps. The quotes are taken from the ‘about me’ sections where individuals introduce themselves. The projects seeks to highlight the intriguing ways gay men choose to present themselves in virtual space through photography and text, and looks at questions of masculinity, sexuality and self-portrayal.

The self-portraits underscore perceived societal ideals of masculinity and sexual desirability; yet their anonymity also depicts an underlying concern of privacy and stigma for promiscuously found even within the domain of queer spaces.
