Sun 12 noon - 5.30 pm
The exhibition runs to Sunday 3rd Oct 2004.
In "Shifting Spaces", Marisa and Esther's individual new series of prints and drawings, though starting from different ideas, have a common thread in the conceptual content which communicates their idea of a transition into a different space, a transition that echoes a journey of changing perceptions and experiences. Also included in this exhibition is a significant body of collaborative prints done by both of them which show their individual distinct styles weaved together in coherent and harmonious visual expressions of these explorations of spaces.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is donating 20 original artworks from its Art-In-Transit program to the Art Invitational charity auction at the Four Seasons Hotel on Septemberr 17th 2004.
These artworks, which include the creations of Chua Ek Kay, Tan Swie Hian, Ian Woo, and Lim Poh Teck, will also later be developed into teaching material for the AO programme.
The auction is in collaboration with AO and Christie's auction house and will feature other Singapore-based artists like Iskandar Jalil, Chng Nai Wee, Om Mei Ai, Eric Chan, and Henri Chen.

Some of you might have heard about this already. There are various ways of getting involved, so see if you are interested.
Basically, we are doing a call out for works for the zero-gravity event on 29 Oct and also for its website. zero-gravity is a tsunamii.net project that will happen in Brisbane and Singapore at the same time and will feature artists and works coming from both sides. We are currently looking for more content from Singapore.
Please read on for details and contact me if you are interested and/or you have other ideas as to how you can contribute.
A website coming near you...
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR: zero-gravity | A NIGHT OF art, music, audio, video | zero-gravity website | 29th Oct 2004. Version 1.0
tsunamii.net presents zero-gravity: a multimedia broadcasting station in the form of a party which features a live broadband link-up between Singapore and Brisbane, Australia. Part of MAAP in Singapore, zero-gravity connects the two physical sites, sending out and receiving signals of sound, music, video, interactive installations.
zero-gravity is developed as part of tsunamii.net’s residency with MAAP and QUT Creative Industries in August 2004.
The Main Event
MAAP in Singapore 2004: “Gravity”
MAAP (Multimedia Art Asia Pacific) is an organisation and festival that explores New Media Art across a range of art forms and practices emphasising interactive multimedia, Internet, digital media, animation and projects integrating new media. MAAP’s inaugural festival in 1998 was based in Brisbane and online and continued till 2001 when it progressed its commitment to regional partnerships. MAAP stepped offshore to Beijing in 2002 and after the resounding success of ‘MAAP in Beijing’ MAAP is planning their next major programme in Singapore.
October 2004 will see ‘MAAP in Singapore’ partner with the Singapore National Arts Council and the Singapore Art Museum to produce a core New Media exhibition surrounded by a network of exhibitions and events.
GRAVITY as the central festival theme will be linking the weightless code of digital media to the conceptual weight of ideas in a concentrated examination of New Media Art. This international exhibition will explore
underlying themes of GRAVITY – the gravity of real and virtual space, social gravity, and the gravity of ideas referenced and linked to the Conceptual Art movement.
In Brisbane: The Block
A multi-purpose venue at the Creative Industries Precinct, it is Queensland University of Technology’s newest faculty. Formed in July 2001, it combines creativity, technology and enterprise in an interdisciplinary array that is leading the field in Australia. It is an ideal setting for this cross-disciplinary event with its modern design and modular settings which allows huge projections and good sounds infrastructure for the event.
In Singapore: Singapore Art Museum
One of the first art museums with international standard museum facilities and programmes in Southeast Asia. Dedicated to the collection and display of 20th-century Singapore and Southeast Asian modern and
contemporary art, SAM joins a league of new generation museums around the world with well-executed exhibitions and community outreach. The Museum houses the national art collection of Singapore and has the largest collection in 20th-century Southeast Asian art by a public institution internationally.
The Party Environments
zero-gravity will be set in club/bar environments where the audience will be situated throughout the space and mingle between other people, installations, video and music.
Warning: Do not expect a straight-forward ‘cinema’ / ‘gallery’ space / party.

TAKSU & The Drawing Room invites you to join us on 10th Sept for the solo opening of Kiko Escora, a Phillipine artist.
Showing a great familiarity and affection for his immediate neighbourhood in Manila, Kiko Escora¹s latest works evoke a fine sense of the tensions and passions prevalent in café society in the Philippines. The works on paper are a curios mixture of sensuality and directness that make them intriguing works where the stances, looks and faces of the characters tell the story. Nearly all situated in a café environment, these works are a heady mix of voluntary and involuntary information. The men are cool and the women beautiful; these works exemplify all that we would wish for in our neighbourhood cafes.
Please RSVP before Sept 8th by ringing the gallery at 6476 4788.

KNACK brings together six young career artists in a group show to grace the official opening of the newly established un-titled Gallery in its First Group Exhibition. Just as the Arts rarely stands alone, our artists believe in the emergence of art used as a social commentary; emotive surfacing of intellectual and cultural currents. Recognizing that art is not one product, but a process involving multiple authorships, KNACK looks into the skill and ability of the six artist as they showcases their works of different styles, methods, medium and concepts.
