Presented by Noise Singapore and creative agency Kult, Noise x GIF Fest 2017 is billed as one of Singapore’s largest GIF events to-date. The Festival which caters to today’s technology-loving generation promises to capture the richness of the GIF (or graphic interchange format), an engaging medium which loops visual data, as an artistic medium and explore its role as a form of digital art, entertainment and creative communication.

The inaugural edition themed “Spellbound” will be held from 5 – 11 October 2017 at Block 7 of Gillman Barracks. The main event will feature an immersive exhibition of over 50 original GIFs, including selected works submitted by amateurs to professionals, 35 years and under, through the Open Call held last month. These specially commissioned GIFs will be showcased through projections, large screens including a mammoth LED wall, and secret rooms, all combining to create a spellbinding experience.

Programmed to captivate a broad range of audiences, Festival-goers can also look forward to curated fringe activities including workshops, live performances, creative dialogue sessions and more. Highlights include a workshop hosted by Aik Beng Chia, one of Singapore’s most followed street photographers on Instagram, who will share how to transform photos into dynamic cinemagraphs (animated photographs). A special edition of ‘Good Times’ featuring a live set between Kiat from Syndicate and Deborah Emmanuel, Singapore’s foremost spoken word poet. A performance by electronic duo .GIF, a GIF making workshop for kids, interactive art installations and inspiring talks by industry pioneers.

Over 500 GIFs were created by professional and amateur artists from across Singapore to the festival theme ‘Illusions’ and submitted to GIF FEST curators through the Open Call. 50 GIFs have been shortlisted and will be showcased at the Festival.

Entry to the family-friendly festival is free with pre-booking required for selected workshops and talks. Refer to the GIF Fest website for more details.

Held in conjunction with the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre’s (SCCC) official opening, Creativity In Pulses aims to bring fresh perspectives to the way we look at Singapore Chinese culture. The theme evokes a culture that embraces both newness and tradition, showcasing fresh perspectives yet acknowledging a deep rootedness in our culture and heritage.

The 21 works by 19 artists speak of new interpretations and perspectives of seeing and understanding our culture, values, traditions and history through the “lenses” of the various artists.

The exhibition draws from a wide spectrum of artists at the cutting edge of Singapore’s creative scene. From filmmakers, product designers, graphic artists, photographers and installation artists, the works displayed at the exhibition hope to provoke thought and conversation through each artist’s unique parsing of aspects of local Chinese culture.

The exhibition runs until 30 September at SCCC Gallery (Level 2). There are complimentary Guided Tours on week-ends: at 2pm inEnglish) and at 2.30pm in Mandarin. Free admission (Last admission to the gallery is half an hour before closing).

Spotted! Charlotte Lim

We learned of Charlotte Lim at The New Now, a show at Gajah Gallery exhibiting the work of seven emerging artists.

Speaking to Culturepush, the Fine Arts Diploma student explains that her work revolves around the human body, its ornate form, its placement, its existence in a space shared amongst other matter.

“As an art form, I believe the human body and its different parts can be dismantled and remodeled; and be grounded in new meaning. The themes my works revolve around are space, power, and conversely, vulnerability and fragility.

All my works are derived from personal experiences, such as addiction, mental illnesses, being institutionalised – and thus attempts to physically manifest individual solace.”

The New Now runs until 17 September at Gajah Gallery. Check it out!
