August Texts

17 books in a 31-day month. Decent speed considering that I was busy with IndigNation for most the month... as well as a bunch of other research projects.

Incidentally, I really would check out the Singapore Art Museum's two new displays - curator Seng Yu Jin's got a great little gallery that looks at both the Singapore Art Society and the Equator Art Society in the light of the anti-colonial upheavals of the '50s, and the UOB Paintings of the Year are, while of uneven standard, rather charmingly arranged in a new niche gallery on the 3rd level.
