Catch two contrasting takes on After Paradie Lost #1, the winning artwork of this year's Signature Art Prize People's Choice Award. Produced and presented in partnership with The Arts and Culture Management Programme, at The Singapore Management University School of Social Sciences, this series juxtaposes a student's perspective against an expert professional from a non-arts sector, to provoke thought on the multiple ways to approach and relate to an artwork.
