This monograph positions Liu Kang, one of Singapore's first generation artists, as observer, commentator, and visionary of modernity in Singapore art history. The contexts in which his works were created consist of a colourful map of diverse cultures, places, influences, from China, Europe and Southeast Asia. The cross-cultural richness in Liu Kang's way of seeing and art making are explored in four essays by curators and art researchers. These essays present fresh insights about the artist's engagement with European and Chinese modernisms in a Singaporean context. The book also contains close to 200 colour illustrations and archival photographs as well as an index and a glossary.
