A weekend screening of specially selected artist films and videos by artists from Asia that expands from the context of the exhibition and includes subjects of myths, history, politics, ghosts, and spectres. The selection will reflect on conflicts specific to various localities where shadows from the past have yet to be laid to rest and promises of the future yet to arrive. The screenings are accompanied by a programme of introductions, talks, and discussions between a group of locally-based curators and researchers, addressing the controversies present in the screened works.
Introductions by: Dr Marc Glöde, film scholar and Assistant Professor, School of Art, Design and Media, NTU; Fang-Tze Hsu, independent researcher and curator; Sam I-Shan, Curator of Visual Arts, Esplanade; Qinyi Lim, independent curator and writer; Sidd Perez, Assistant Curator, NUS Museum; Silke Schmickl, Curator, National Gallery Singapore; and Dr David Teh, curator, writer, and researcher based at the National University of Singapore.
