Workshop: Making Sense by artist and illustrator Tan Zi Xi (Singapore)

On the occasion of Gillman Barracks Art Day Out! x The School Holidays

Venue: NTU CCA Singapore, The Seminar Room, Block 43 Malan Road

Participants are invited to meditate on the sounds from the exhibition, The Ground: From the Land to the Sea composed by artist and musician Tarek Atoui. The workshop will explore several aspects of image making, from abstract to narrative, engaging closely with the idea of developing stories that sounds can tell. The participants will visually translate these sonorities through the question “What does something intangible like a sound look like?”

Developed for participants aged 13 and above.
