Ancillary activities by Perspectives Film Festival
On Oct 22, join us for an interactive workshop and dialogue with award-winning surrealist artist Rosihan Dahim at *SCAPE. View some of Dahimâs best known works in an open art exhibition on both Oct 22 and 23. Most Singaporeans might not be familiar with surrealism and its origins, but there is a small, thriving community of local artists and art lovers who have contributed to the scene here. Pioneering this movement in Singapore is Rosihan Dahim, who will collaborate with Perspectives Film Festival 2016 to host an intimate dialogue on the historical and cultural intricacies of surrealist art through a presentation and live demonstration. Anchored by the personal experiences of Dahim, the session aims to delve into the world of surrealism through one’s imagination and creativity. Dahim will also conduct an interactive workshop, inviting some members of the audience to have a close encounter with surrealism by trying their hand at creating their own works of art. An open art exhibition, held over two days, will also feature some of Dahimâs most known works.
