Join us for a closing programme beginning with a conversation about the diverse creative processes behind Dancing Without Touching with artist Sarah Choo Jing and curatorial advisor Dr. Karin G. Oen.
The artist’s research, staging, and vision for the five video works and the exhibition’s architectural environment have allowed visitors to immerse themselves in a carefully constructed experience. One goal of creating this experience was to incite reactions and invite reflections on our own relationships to the contemporary entertainment worlds we all inhabit, dominated by screens and the ever-finer line between the real, the unreal, and the surreal.
In addition to hearing from the artist and discussing the work on view, the programme will include sharing and reflections by several members of the exhibition’s public who submitted creative responses after viewing the show. Marking the end of the exhibition, this programme hopes to instigate future conversations inspired by the subjects, atmosphere, and open-ended possibilities of the show. To be part of the discussion, please submit your own creative response by 1 March 2023 to email@example.com.

The artist is concerned with the gaze of the flaneur, voyeurism and the uncanny.
