Singapore from BW to C v.2.0.17 - A short film by Gilles Massot

In November 1985, Gilles Massot presented his first exhibition in Singapore: a series of forty-two black and white painted photographs, set for a one-night-only event in a flatted factory in MacPherson Road.

Date/Time: 7 Oct 2017, 8-9pm
Venue: Visitor’s Briefing Room, Lvl 1, National Library Singapore
Admission: Free
