You might have seen the pastel-hued pictures of this on Instagram but the curated festival draws to a close this month. Consisting of a series of events, art exhibitions, outdoor sculptures and public engagements, DISINI derives its term from the Malay adverb 'di sini', meaning 'over here'. Spaces are made creative in a locale turned interesting.
With a keen focus on geopolitics and global events, this exhibition will feature five photographic pairings that juxtapose the settings between the first-generation wealth and the refugee crisis. Pictures are taken through the technical tool of satellite imaging to demonstrate the vastness and complexities of the subject.
16 August 2018 to 27 April 2019 at the NUS Museum.
