2 film cancellations within 10 days
A PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE FILMMAKER
The cancellation and postponement of public screenings in Singapore (Jan 23) and Indonesia (Feb 3) have been interesting episodes in the journey of this documentary film, The 24-Hour Art Practice. The circumstances that led to their cancellation/postponement very much reflect the state of interdependency of relationships and reveal the various dynamics that are at work within the Asian art scene -- both visible and invisible. This incidental "side show" says as much about Asia and its relationship with art than any film can illustrate.
I'm thankful to the Hong Kong Arts Centre for reiterating their strong support and desire to proceed with a special screening to the art world during the Art Basel period and to ArtAsiaPacific for moderating the post-screening discussion relating to private museums in Asia. I'm looking forward to the discourse in Hong Kong.
Thanks also to Singapore Tourism Board for their unstinting support throughout the entire process. Hope to be able to publicly screen it in Singapore soon.
It has been one hell of a ride, but I have discovered gems in the art world along the way. Thank you all for your support !! The show will go on. The interview I did with Darryl Wee from Art Info aptly describes the journey of filmmaking.
Special art world screening-cum-discussion March 15, 4pm, Hong Kong Arts Centre Strictly by registration only (online registration will be available shortly)
