Annual Ngee Ann National Teochew Artists’ Exhibition (TAE)

Since its establishment in 1998, Ngee Ann Cultural Centre (NACC), a subsidiary of The Ngee Ann Kongsi, has been actively promoting local arts and culture. The annual National Teochew Artists’ Calligraphy & Painting Exhibition was first introduced in the same year as a platform for local Teochew artists to showcase their works and talent in traditional Chinese calligraphy, Chinese ink painting and Western painting. The exhibition was renamed “Ngee Ann National Teochew Artists’ Exhibition” (TAE) in 2015 to engage with and embrace more genres of visual art.

Over the 21 years, the exhibition has grown year on year, attracting hundreds of local Teochews, who are professional artists, art enthusiasts and young talents to participate and exhibit as a group.

In 1999, the NACC established the “Ngee Ann Artist of the Year Award”. Each November at the opening ceremony of TAE, this prestigious award is presented to a renowned local Teochew artist to honour his/her personal achievement in the pursuit of artmaking and outstanding contribution to local art scene. This award serves as an encouragement to the younger generation of artists.

In the search for talented Teochew artists in the younger generation, this year, NACC has launched a new “Ngee Ann Young Promising Artist Award” to introduce emerging young artists to fellow Teochews as well as Singaporeans. The NACC hopes to attract and nurture rising stars of tomorrow, encouraging more young artists to showcase their work in this platform




为了表彰本地潮籍艺术家的个人艺术成就及其对艺术界所做出的杰出贡献,義安文化中心自1999年起,每年都会在十一月举办的画展开幕典礼上颁发“年度義安特选卓越艺术家” 奖项给一位资深的艺术家。这些艺术家所展现出的严谨、刻苦耐劳的创作热忱及力求完美的创作精神值得大家敬佩,也为我国的年轻一代树立了良好的楷模。
