Organised in partnership with Art & Market (A&M), A& M Salon: Art & Food explores the surprising connections between art and food, focusing on collaborations, joys, challenges and more! Moderated by our Art Lead Clara Peh, this Salon will feature our very own Chef Ivan Brehm in conversation with artists Adeline Kueh and Yen Phang.
Registration begins at $10 for talk admission and $33 for light bites and a drink. Full menu also available throughout the evening.
Ivan Brehm is chef-owner of one Michelin-starred restaurant Nouri, established in 2017, and creative interdisciplinary space, Appetite, established in 2020). He is recognised for developing a system of thought, called Crossroads Thinking, of which cooking is a part of.
Adeline Kueh makes installations, photography and socially-embodied works that reconsider our relationship with things and rituals around us. Using drawing as a conceptual tool, Adeline looks to cartographies, craft and oral tradition to map out the historical trajectories across time and space through her use of found objects and new productions. As a co-founder of the Critical Craft Collective, the centrality of craft in contemporary practice and the politics of care have become increasingly important in the collective’s push towards creating the Craft Council of Singapore.
Born to scientists, Yen Phang’s practice is attuned to genetic legacies and biological processes. His current preoccupations focus on system/pattern noise, slowness, and metabolisms. He was a recipient of the Winston Oh Grant (2016), the Winston Oh Travel Research Award (2016), and the Cliftons Art Prize (2015). His work has been collected by the Singapore High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Singapore), and British Airways for their Terminal 1 Lounge at Changi Airport, Singapore.
Clara Che Wei Peh is Art Lead and Curator at Appetite Singapore. She is also the Founder of NFT Asia, the largest Asian focused digital community for NFT artists. She has conducted lectures and workshops at LASALLE College of the Arts, Yale-NUS College, NTU CCA Singapore, National Gallery Singapore, and more. Her texts are published on Hyperallergic, Yishu Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art, Art and Market, and more.
