“Crossroads” is a new annual art festival celebrating new media art in Southeast Asia. Part of Singapore Art Week 2022 and supported by the National Arts Council, the festival embraces the open-ended genre of artistic practice utilizing new media with 6 local artists from 14-16 and 21-23 January 2022.
Taking its name from the term used to refer to intersections and crucial decisions, the first edition of Crossroads is set to screen on major billboard displays at ION Orchard and Ten Square from 7.30PM to 8.00PM. Inspired by recent events that have forced society to many a crossroad – the global pandemic and rapid technological advancements – “Crossroads” prompts audiences to reconsider our interactions with structures that shape our collective lived experiences.
First of its kind in Southeast Asia, the thematic experience ranges from animated films, computer-generated imagery and generative art made completely accessible in public spaces. The show features 6 local multidisciplinary artists: visual artists Phua Juan Yong, Howie Kim, Juria Toramae, Priyageetha Dia and Tristan Lim, as well as graphic designer trio Hause.
