These Storied Walls: At Textures 2020, a Celebration of Singapore Literature at the Arts House
Returning for its third edition with the theme “These Storied Walls”, the annual festival is inspired by The Arts House’s many identities. From a Scotsman’s planned estate to a courthouse, assembly house, our nation’s first parliament, and now Singapore’s literary arts centre committed to enriching lives through the arts, the walls of The Arts House have been etched with many stories.
In this celebration of local narratives, Singapore’s writers, artists, and performers will come together to create more stories for the walls to tell. Co-commissioned by The Arts House and #BuySingLit, and supported by National Arts Council, this year’s edition features an array of interactive elements that animate Singapore literature throughout the house, including VR experiences, audio-visual exhibitions, and interactive installations.
In the spirit of making art accessible, most of the programmes are free to attend. Members of the public will be able to come down and enjoy a weekend of words (13-15 March), while selected installations and programmes will run until 22 March.
