Textures: Out of Print - Exhibition Tours

Out of Print is an exhibition presented by Sing Lit Station in collaboration with graphic design firm Sarah and Schooling. Curated by poet Daryl Lim Wei Jie, this exhibition showcases the history and early development of Singapore literature alongside modern graphic design techniques, training the spotlight on literary works that might otherwise have been forgotten.

Visitors to the exhibition will learn about the historical importance of up to 20 titles published between 1965 and 1995. The archival copies of these selected books will be artfully arranged alongside contemporary reinterpretations of their covers by Sarah and Schooling, whose large-scale works will combine various media and design approaches such as typography, illustration, photography, and varied printing techniques. Visitors will also get to take home a piece of literary history through informational pamphlets that unfold into large posters, cataloguing all of the exhibition’s re-imagined covers of classic Sing Lit Titles.

The showcase runs from Feb 27 to March 19, 10am to 10pm daily at Gallery I, The Arts House.

This programme is part of Textures – a weekend with words.

Textures celebrates the power and beauty of words. It invites audiences to experience and appreciate how words give us the ability to express ourselves as well as give meaning to our lives and the world. With its profound ability to connect and unite, words breathe life into the vast breadth of human thought and feeling, whether spoken or written.

In this weekend of words, we also celebrate Singapore literature and the people who have contributed to it. From mastering the craft to those building a community of writers and readers, they are all part of weaving and strengthening the fabric of our literary landscape.
