This month of the year may be the hottest yet (literally!) so why not head to some art galleries for some cool and introspective air?
FAUX: Ivan Lam
Question the lines transgressing the boundaries of rumour and absolute truth and find a centre amidst all this turmoil on your own terms. Lam brings the identity of an artist to the spotlight, asking if what you see resonates with imitation, or true expression. Is the artist an artist in the classical sense, or has the term evolved with the revolution of the newer age? Come decide for yourself!
