SG Art Book Library is a catalogue of published print materials that generate further discourse on ideas, practices, and current affairs through art.

The Library believes in the importance of representing the diversity of our community, capturing the energy, vision, and voices of artists and practitioners, as well as showcasing the creative possibilities of art book publishing.

Our collection of zines focus on sociopolitical concerns in Singapore and around the world — gender inequality, racial discrimination, human rights, LGBTQ+ rights, protests, activism, feminism, social, political, economic and environment struggles, etc.

Starting as a virtual space, it provides access to our selection of zines and art books from Singapore and around the world.

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.
