A total of 579 projects will be showcased at the annual Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) graduation exhibition from Jun 1 to Jul 20. 

Titled The Grad Expectations 2022, the exhibition will be a hybrid event with displays available on both physical and digital spaces. 

The exhibition will feature works from 485 graduating students from the School of Art and Design (SOAD) including those from the diploma tracks of Fine Art, 3D Design, Design and Media, and Fashion Studies. 

Over the span of almost two months, a total of 477 works will be showcased online while 102 works will be displayed in NAFA’s physical venues. 

On top of that, a physical runway show will be held to display works of graduating students from the Fashion Studies programme. 

The theme of the event is “Create Your Space”, and it reflects the students’ values of resilience and adaptability, said NAFA.

One of the featured works is The Peculiars, a womenswear collection by Diploma in Fashion Design student Jennifer Priskilla. This collection experiments with bold colours, prints, and silhouettes to create clothes for the colour-blind. 

Another work featured is titled Float to Sink and Repeat… (Blue Imprints) created by Nathan Tan Yew Wai, a Diploma in Fine Art student. Inspired by the growing concerns for the environment due to humans, his series showcases the negative effects of humans on the environment through how human waste pollutes the fresh waters of Singapore. 

Nathan will also be holding his first solo exhibition in June at HEARTH, a community art space by Art Outreach. 

The online exhibition can be accessed via the website from Jun 1 to Jul 20. The physical exhibition is located at NAFA Campus 1 and 2 at 80 Bencoolen Street, 189655. 

The exhibition is open to the public from Jun 2 to Jul 20 from 12pm to 7pm. Admission is free.
