Sherman Sam

The Singaporian painter and critic Sherman Sam was educated in France and California and contributes regularly to Artforum and Art Review. For Beyond, he interviews septuagenarian artist Tan Swie Hian, who now has two major art spaces devoted to his work. Sherman’s most memorable recent trip, he says, was to a German-English wedding on the day of football’s World Cup final, “when I learned pretty quickly, that cheering for the Argentinian team was not a wise thing”.
