‘SOUND: Latitudes and Attitudes’ brings together the work of seventeen artists in Singapore (including The Observatory, Gulayu Arkestra and Zai Tang) who share the use of sound as a medium and as a subject. The exhibition features works by everyone from musicians and composers, to visual and performance artists. Expect curated listening stations, a series of changing installations, performances, sound scores and an archive.
As the curators Bani Haykal and Joleen Loh put it, “it is an invitation to engage with the openness of sound at its most social, spatial, and corporeal.” Explore the exhibition this weekend, but check back for details on live performances and new installations on Wednesdays (starting 19 February).
KidsFest 2014 continues this weekend with ‘Horrible Histories: Awful Egyptians’ (recommended for children 7 and above) and ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’ (for children aged 3 and above). These are the last few performances of the festival, so be sure to catch them.
