It is around the corner, less than a month away! Part of indigNation7 (here), RAP will be organizing the second edition of RA.
What is RA? RA can be anything. Rainbow Arts. Rated Adults. But for us, RA is our annual group exhibitions for the indigNation festival, as part of Singapore’s pride month! Last year, we had 14 artists from Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia showcasing works for a show titled Rooftop Access. The event included performances, video art screenings and ‘gay’ art books showcases.
This year, RA will stand for RETREATTACK! It is a result of indigNation7’s theme of Proud to be. It questions the degree of pride and how much are we ‘proud’ in the community. We are attacking and retreating at the same time? RETREATTACK! aims to bring forward this issue of conflicting ideology behind the word ‘pride’, especially in the context of LGBT liberation.
Well, enough said, book your dates from 3-14 August 2011 as we will have a series of events lining up apart from the exhibition. Held in Dahlia Gallery at 69A Pagoda Street, expect performances, talks, dialogues, film screenings and many more within the period of 2 weeks! 🙂
