Curated by poet Daryl Lim Wei Jie and presented by Sing Lit Station, Out of Print showcases the history and early development of Singapore literature alongside modern graphic design techniques, shining the spotlight on significant literary works that had left an impact on our cultural landscape.
Visitors to the exhibition will discover the historical importance of 16 titles published between 1965 and 1995 and appreciate contemporary reinterpretations of their covers art directed by Sarah and Schooling. Combining various media and design approaches such as typography, illustration, photography and printing techniques, the artworks inject fresh energy, curiosity and interest in past literary works that might be forgotten in our present-day understanding of local literature.
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.
