We are now in the second-last week of the Singapore International Festival of Arts!
There may not be much buzzing this week at 72-13, but we sure have one programme to keep you excited!
In Conversation with Ron Arad
Join the world-renowned London-based architect, artist and designer for an enlightening session about art in public spaces. This is your chance to get up close with the man who most recently redesigned the iconic Watergate Hotel in Washington DC. He is also designing a cancer treatment centre in northern Israel, to be completed in 2018, that will serve the residents of West Bank conflict zones. Among his latest art works are the sculpture “Thought of Train of Thought” at St Pancras railway station and the re-installation of “Curtain Call” at the Roundhouse. Other public art pieces include the “Vortext” in Seoul and the “Kesher” Sculpture at Tel Aviv University. In June, he received the 2016 Compasso d’Oro award for lifetime achievement from ADI, the Italian industrial design association.
