In partnership with Kult International, Noise Singapore presents the Noise x GIF Fest 2017, a first of its kind platform for creative storytelling in Singapore. The festival is an opportunity for 50 young artists to experiment with the GIF art form, an engaging medium that loops visual data. With its appeal to a diverse audience, the GIF artworks not only have the promise of online exposure, but will also be presented for a week at Noise’s first multimedia showcase in October 2017.
On the use of GIF as a medium to transmit messages, Steve Lawler, Creative Director of Kult International said, “The animated .gif is being recognised globally as a modern art form in both underground and contemporary art scenes. GIF Fest 2017 will bring these artworks away from the computer screen and into a multimedia exhibition aimed at showcasing some of Singapore’s most exciting young image makers. Additionally, a series of talks and workshops will be held in the exhibition space to inspire the next generation of creatives and increase the appreciation of this growing art form.”
