The Artist’s Voice—REFRAME
The Parkview Museum Singapore is pleased to present The Artist’s Voice, an exhibition featuring 34 international contemporary artists, with works that focus on the capacity and competence of contemporary art to transfer essential messages and existential revelations. A series of public programmes will accompany the exhibition through its duration, as well as for the occasion of Singapore Art Week.
Titled REFRAME, it invites the audience to reflect on the artistic methods employed by artists to explore and expand on the concept of the artistic self. REFRAME includes Saturday Sketching, where guided by Museum Assistants, participants will draw inspiration from selected works in the exhibition to create drawings of their own; Acts of Voicing is a dialogue session between Singaporean artists, which raises important questions around the artist’s role in society; moderated by Dr. Lorand Hegyi, the Artistic Director of The Parkview Museum Singapore, and featuring a lineup of Singaporean artists Lee Wen, Ho Tzu Nyen, and Jason Wee. The programme also includes complementary guided tours throughout the period of the exhibition.
And finally, to tie up Singapore Art Week with a flourish, the PVM Live! Closing Party will host performances by Bani Haykal, Weishh (.gif), and a live DJ set from Rah (Darker Than Wax)—all against the backdrop of the museum, after hours.
