July 15, 2017 @ 3:00 pm5:00 pm UTC+8

Karin Weber Gallery - Yours Sincerely: Letter Writing And Art Creation.

Because of limited seats, please rsvp via [email protected] in advance.

Letter writing is an ancient way of communication. Human beings write with affection, their past amidst the macrohistory and mails to somebody they trust. Is the desire to communicate met with set backs or not? There is something of each individual and the receiver in letter writing. The exhibition ‘Composing Stories With Fragments Of Time’ uses a letter written by an emigrant as a start. This talk engages both artists and writers by sharing stories on letter writing and art creation.
