Where food culture meets art culture. A series of works based on Singapore’s coffeeshop culture that also seek to raise an interest in the arts on a local level.
The Coffeeshop Project aims to create a space where an established food culture can meet a burgeoning art culture. Based in the hawker centres of Singapore, this project is a creative initiative to capture the image and atmosphere of a number of important socio-cultural hubs whilst developing an interest in its preservation. Another intention, running parallel to that of drawing attention to the coffeeshop culture, is to increase an interest in visual arts whilst encouraging the notion of proprietorship over such artworks as those being presented in the coffeeshop environment.
The Coffeeshop Project was initiated by Anthony Askew (UK) and Gloria Wong (SG) 09/2013.
