The publication is produced on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of the same title held in National Library in Singapore in October 2006.

The exhibition is a retrospective celebration of the exhibition held at the old National Library in 1966, which has been one of the first Singapore art exhibitions to take place after the country's independence. Works by the same six artists were exhibited again. Instead of featuring the art works, the catalogue presents a discussion on them, especially regarding the use of materials. The writings are supported by black-and-white photographs.

Including biographies of the artists.
