Singapore Art Museum’s annual Family-Friendly Contemporary Art Exhibition
A series of Imaginarium: Into the Space of Time programmes will take place throughout the four-month-long exhibition period, where visitors of all ages can further engage with the ideas and concepts explored in the exhibition. These include a special preview tour led by Imaginarium artists, toddler art workshops, tours and workshops specifically tailored for school children, as well as daily screenings of award-winning short films inspired by the concept of time, dreams and imagination about the world.
Before they journey through the exhibition, young time travellers are encouraged to equip themselves with a special ‘Traveller’s Kit’, which includes an activity booklet that introduces ideas and concepts within the exhibition in fun and engaging ways, colour pencils and a ‘I Am a Time Traveller’ badge.
Highlighted Programmes/ Activities:
Art Sound Write
Visual art meets the literary world in Art Sound Write, where poets rise to the inspirational challenge of the artworks in Imaginarium: Into the Space of Time.
Join this live reading by poets Samuel Caleb Wee, Iain Lim, Crispin Rodrigues, Marylyn Tan and Patricia Karunungan and you might just be caught in a time warp as you stand mesmerized by sight and sound.
