Singapore Art Museum’s exhibition Cinerama: Art and the Moving Image in Southeast Asia opens from 17 November 2017 to 18 March 2018 at SAM at 8Q. The exhibition explores the history of the genre, its current-day expressions, and what the future of moving images may come to be, and the artworks – from hand-drawn animations to films and mixed-media installations – delve into individual and collective memory, identity and politics.
Cinerama features specially-commissioned artworks, artist loans, and select works from the Singapore Art Museum collection. Artists and art collectives whose works featured in the exhibition are: Amy Lee Sanford (USA/ Cambodia), Hayati Mokhtar (Malaysia), Jeremy Sharma (Singapore), Korakrit Arunanondchai and Alex Gvojic (Thailand and USA), Ming Wong (Singapore), Narpati Awangga a.k.a oomleo (Indonesia), Sarah Choo Jing (Singapore), The Propeller Group (Vietnam/ USA), Tromarama (Indonesia), Victor Balanon (Philippines).
A series of accompanying film programmes, workshops, and artist and curator tours will be held over the course of the exhibition period, further exploring the artwork themes and the medium of the moving image. Find out more about the exhibition and its programmes at www.singaporeartmuseum.sg.
