Filipa Ramos will lead an Exhibition (de)Tour of Joan Jonas: They Come to Us Without a Word. Joan Jonas’s work is inhabited by a multitude of human and non-human creatures, which traverse her drawings, videos, and performances in a plurality of gestures and configurations. Assembled in idiosyncratic, non-narrative manners, these animal selves propose new temporal conventions and ways of being in the world. Ramos’ (de)Tour will be a journey across the creatures Jonas summons and collaborates with through her work. Ramos will also connect with artists and writers and explore the Singapore art scene as well as the larger region of Southeast Asia.
