Lingual Nerves: An Afternoon of Poetry Readings

Lingual Nerves: An Afternoon of Poetry Readings

Join Singapore poets Isa Kamari, Koh Buck Song, Madeleine Lee, Lee Tzu Pheng and Edwin Thumboo as they read original poems written in response to works by Chua Mia Tee. The poets also delve into their expansive oeuvres to present existing socially-engaged poems that reflect on our ever-changing society. Following the readings, hear from the poets in a panel moderated by Yong Shu Hoong, as they unpack their works and trace the wider influences of social realism in poetry and literature.

Koh Buck Song is the Gallery’s Poet-in-Residence 2021-22; following Edwin Thumboo in 2018-19 and Madeleine Lee 2017-18.
This programme is organised in association with the exhibition
Chua Mia Tee: Directing the Real.
