McNally School of Fine Arts

Praxis Press: Eleventh Edition

Editor’s Note

Dear Readers,

Welcome back to another issue of Praxis Press! We are kicking off this issue with an article from Hazel Koh on Open Circuits featuring the School’s signature exhibition held annually at the LASALLE Winstedt campus, followed by many exciting activities such as industry showcase i Light Marina Bay project, artist film night Wayang Malam, the overseas field trip to Kota Tinggi and Trans/Mission dissertation research seminar.

The 11th issue welcomes student assistant editors Loh Hui Ying Abby and Ian Tee Wang Loong from BA(Hons) Fine Arts Level 2, who have added rich content and diverse voices to the publication. That being said, we are looking forward to involving more students in the editorial panel of future issues.

Praxis Press, as promised, will continue to service as a wonderful platform in capturing and documenting the wide range of activities both inside and outside of the McNally School of Fine Arts for each academic year. On behalf of the editorial board, we hope you would enjoy reading the latest news of the School and staying connected with us. While we are pleased to see the significant increase of number of writers from the Diploma level, we would also like to extend our invitation to the fine art alumni for their contributions, to help us keep the exchanges going, and to stay in touch!
