Event description

Description

Experience curated screenings, academic presentations, and panel discussions centred around experimental film practice, in the presence of prominent regional moving image practitioners. Topics include film in the Asian Cold War context, and how avant-garde artists self-reflexively use the medium to create dissenting histories. An expanded cinema performance at Gallery’s rooftop installation, commencing at 7pm, concludes the sessions.

Organised in collaboration with the Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore.
