Gillman Barrack’s flagship event, Art After Dark: Above & Beyond, returns this year from Nov 6 to Nov 15.

The art exhibition will feature a mix of online and on-site touchpoints for the first time in the event’s history to fuel your love for contemporary art.

The event will see theatre personalities Adeeb Fazah and Shannen Tan give a tour of the Gillman Barracks online. The pair of friends will explore the historic precinct and give viewers a preview of the current exhibitions.

You can catch it on Nov 6 at 4pm on the Gillman Barracks’ Instagram.

There is also a panel discussion by young changemakers from diverse backgrounds, where they will shed new perspectives on collecting art. The discussion will be available for viewing on Nov 7 from 2pm to 3pm on the Gillman Barracks’ Facebook.

As for on-site exclusive events, artist Kray Chen presents a video of a Teochew street-opera tent in Singapore while chairs sculptures are scattered around the video area. One of the things the work represents is the distance between each person today.

Finally, discover the future of art in Southeast Asia as speakers from Asian Film Archive, National Gallery Singapore, and Sing Lit Station discuss the challenges ahead for art programmes in the region. This discussion will be both on-site and online on Nov 15 from 4pm to 5pm.
