Qinyi Lim in Conversation with Godwin Koay 
In collaboration with Things That Can Happen

Qinyi Lim invites Godwin Koay, the first and current artist resident at the new independent art space Things That Can Happen, to discuss the permissibility of antagonism and defiance in a time of wealth and contentment in Singapore.


About the speaker

Godwin Koay’s works explore and test possibilities of artistic practice that intersect with anarchist ideas of social and political praxis, broadly engaging tensions between autonomy and authority while examining thematics of fiction, imagination, precarity, anxiety, urgency, and counterhegemony. He currently lives and works in Singapore.
