Singaporean designer Andrew Gn’s works to be showcased at Asian Civilisations Museum May 31-Sep 17
The exhibition features five sections that explore Andrew’s roots in Asia, cross-cultural expressions of Asian and Western art in his work.
Singaporean fashion designer Andrew Gn’s works will be displayed at the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) from May 27 to Sep 17.
Titled Andrew Gn: Fashioning Singapore and the World, the exhibition showcases over 100 creations by the Paris-based Singaporean designer who has won awards such as Designer of the year in 2007. Andrew has also designed pieces for celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Emma Stone.
The exhibition features five sections that explores Andrew’s roots in Asia, cross-cultural expressions of Asian and Western art in his work, and celebrates the distinctive aesthetics, craftsmanship, and global impact of his designs.
The displays also reveal Andrew’s diverse sources of inspiration, which include art, fashion, literature, film, and his Singaporean roots. Inspired by Singapore’s multi-cultural history, Andrew’s works blend Chinese, Indian, Malay, Indonesian, and Peranakan influences.
Visitors can also participate in “Fashion Try-On” — an interactive multimedia experience where guests can use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to look for motifs such as butterflies and corals around the exhibition space. These can be used to create a personalised outfit that visitors can model at augmented reality kiosks in the Contemporary Gallery and brought home as a souvenir in the form of a printed picture.
With an emphasis on inclusive and contemporary representations of Asia and fashion, the exhibition aims to celebrate local talent and inspire the next generation of designers.
Andrew Gn: Fashioning Singapore and the World will be open to the public from 10am to 9pm on Fridays, and from 10am to 7pm on other days of the week. Tickets are available at $12 for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents.
