Art of the Rehearsal
Daily | 10pm – 5pm (except from 28 Apr to 31 Jul 2017)

Art of the Rehearsal is a three-channel immersive video installation by multidisciplinary artist Sarah Choo Jing. This artwork depicts Singaporean dancers across various cultures practicing along the back lanes of cultural districts in the city. Reflecting on the rigorous and intense training behind the performance, the artist seeks to bring out the consistent determination of the performers. The emphasis of the installation work is on the process rather than on the final outcome.

The dance performance in the video is presented by Apsaras Arts Ltd, Era Dance Theatre and Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Dance Theatre.

Moving Memories
Now till 31 Jul | 12pm – 5pm

In conjunction with the Singapore Heritage Festival 2017, the National Museum of Singapore presents the artworks of Yip Yew Chong, whose life-sized murals seek to express the romance of “places and moments… that blend sights, sounds, smell and tastes”. Yip’s murals have captured the imagination of those who have travelled to heritage neighbourhoods such as Kampong Glam and Tiong Bahru in search of them.

Savour these moments of our tangible and intangible heritage, such as barbers in back lanes and fortune tellers, traditional kopi-making and road-side communal satay-eating, as they come alive through animation, soundscape and projection in Gallery10, the museum’s new digital experimental space.

 *Please note that Gallery10 will be closed on 11 to 14 Jul and 19 & 20 Jul for private events.

About Gallery10
