SOMAF 2017 will be held on 20 & 21 January in 2017 as a two-day long event at LASALLE College of the Arts.
SOMAF was established in 2015 as a three-night long indoor and outdoor media art festival in Gillman Barracks. It brought over 4,000 audiences over the three-night long program. Whereas SOMAF 2015 was a site-specific project that related life and art, SOMAF 2017 will be a time-specific project in which Korea and Singapore discuss future by placing media art on the table. Looking through media (and art) SOMAF 2017 will explore diverse aspects of future society we can imagine and discuss. It will be comprised with a forum and a related workshop to examine long-term directions of Singapore Open Media Art Festival and to explore new ideas for the next issue of SOMAF.
SOMAF aims to provide a space in which Singapore and Korea design the near future and share ideas through ‘media’ and ‘art.’ For this, LASALLE College of the Arts is a crucial educational institution that tries to explore interdiciplinary consilience among visual art, design, new media, performance art and so on, as the host for SOMAF.
