Field Trips – Jhnn Ymn

Here are the three field trips I attended, one of which I co-organised!

  1. Art After Dark @ Gillman Barracks (organiser)
  2. Red Dot Design Museum
  3. Artist Talk by Nguan

Art After Dark @ Gillman Barracks (organiser)

Together with Zi Lin, I organised and attended the trip to Art After Dark at Gillman Barracks, which was the art precinct’s signature open house event that doubled as a 6th anniversary celebration. Involving artist open studios, exhibition openings, artist talks, and music performances, it allowed us to find out more about various artistic practices through the night.

Studio visits

Red Dot Design Museum

Together with my classmates, I visited the exhibition, A Preview Of The Future at the Red Dot Design Museum. The exhibition displayed design research proposals from the winners of the Red Dot Award for Design Concept. This edition in particular dealt with design concepts for the future — a fitting exhibition for our class. The show featured designs for tools, wearables, robots, and various other products.

Artist Talk by Nguan

With my classmates, I attended the artist talk by Nguan, held by the Singapore International Photography Festival. The talk was organised in conjunction with his photography exhibition entitled Singapore. The series sought to present the country as dream landscape — romanticised and softly-hued. During the talk itself, Nguan talked about his process as a photographer — the methods utilised to capture a shot, the photographer’s tools, such as lighting and composition, and the notions of street photography and voyeurism.
