Film Screening: ArtScience on Screen: Textures of the City



In partnership with the Singapore Pavilion at the Venice Biennale and Archifest Singapore, ArtScience Museum is proud to present a curated programme of films as a love letter to cities – celebrating its urban spirit, textures, its people, and how we can all build a more inclusive world.

Featuring a total of 7 feature films and 3 short films ranging from film festival picks, cult-classics and verité-style documentaries, the films highlight inequality in cities, casting gazes into those who fall through the cracks in urban planning, such as immigrants, the elderly, and even whole low-income neighbourhoods. At the same time, the films also remind us of the beauty of human relationships and how they can be harnessed in urban design to shape a more inclusive society.

Exhibitors and collaborators from the Singapore Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2021 will discuss how some the films resonate with them personally and in their practices in post-screening dialogues (pre-recorded) within our Curiosity Gallery (outside the Expression Gallery screening space) and through a special edition of an online Screen Zine.
