8288 Nautical Miles – Visual Arts Exhibition
8288 Nautical Miles is both the title of this exhibition and the absolute distance between New York and Singapore. As a selection of works, it enumerates the journeys undertaken. Elaborating on the festival’s theme of writing home in an age with renewed opportunities for connectivity, and when emails far outpace handwritten letters, 8288 Nautical Miles urges five artists and two collaboratives to meditate on their bi-continental lives, in which home is sought, found, and rediscovered. In re-presenting their sense of home, the artists featured in this exhibition capture facets of Singapore as the island-nation reaches a significant milestone: turning 50 years of age.
Open for public viewing 14 - 22 September, 12 pm to 5 pm
