Following its successful Yayoi Kusama exhibition, National Gallery Singapore is launching the first exhibition on Impressionism in Southeast Asia on Thursday (16 November). Running till 11 March 2018 at the Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery, the works show how this influential art movement transformed painting with a bold new use of colour and style.
“Painting with Light” will screen works that feature the “transformative power of art”. National Gallery Singapore will launch its annual film festival at the Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium & Foyer in October, according to a press release on Wednesday (13 Sep). Titled “Painting with Light: International Festival of Films on Art”, the inaugural film festival runs from 7 to 29 Oct. It will screen works that feature the “transformative power of art, and the passion and humanity of those who live and work with it around the world’, all to encourage a deeper appreciation for the arts through films.
You don’t have to travel overseas to get up close and personal with Yayoi Kusama’s artwork, because the National Gallery Singapore is bringing over 120 of her pieces to Singapore.
