Salon Session (Presentations and Panel Discussion)
Sunday, 21 August 2016
3 – 6pm
National Gallery Singapore, Auditorium

Using Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis (A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery, 2016) by Lav Diaz as a starting point, the panel will explore the artistic investigations in relation to national narratives and myth-making. Join us to explore how Southeast Asian history is represented and challenged through cinema and visual art, particularly in the pre-independence era with the burgeoning of nationalism.

Lav Diaz (Filmmaker)
June Yap (Independent Curator)
Silke Schmickl ( Curator/Manager (Programmes), Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, LASALLE College of the Arts)

Moderated by Shabbir Hussain Mustafa (Senior Curator, National Gallery Singapore)
