Title: The contributions of post-independence Singapore Malay artists : some problems and issues
Synopsis:

This paper attempts to locate the contributions of the post-independence Malay artists, to put forward an alternative history to the better-known Singapore Story. The approach involves a consideration of the importance of art as a form of Malay cultural heritage to the Malay community and the wider Singapore society, to underscore the motivations underlying the Singapore Story that had submerged the voices of the Malay artists’. Also, I have taken into account other contributory factors that have caused the Malay artists to be marginalized, such as the lack of consistent patronage; the Malay community’s concept of art as opposed to understanding of art which is entrenched in Western discourses; and the artists’ mediums to the Nanyang artists and recognizes their importance to the development of a Singapore cultural identity, and more importantly, also seeks to make a contribution to the historiography of Singapore art, and to the ongoing debates about Singapore’s past.
