The Opening Reception || Atelier S P A C E

10 November @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm SGT

SGD180

7PM-8PM
National Gallery 
The Opening Reception 
*Secret meetpoint*
You’ll meet your hosts, A. Spaice and Dipika Kohli of Design Kompany and Kismuth Books, and your fellow participating guests.

8PM-9PM
The Arts House
Speculative Fiction Open Mic
Here is when we may move over as a group, or partial group, to catch the Speculative Fiction Open Mic at the not-too-far Arts House. We will be speculative, and decide together, in the moment. This atelier  programme is all about S P A C E-making, so that means a fluidity in how the evening plan moves. It’s very fun, and freeing, to do what you wanna do when you feel like doing it. (PS, S P A C E looks like this.)

Design Kompany

What’s an ‘atelier?’

Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. An atelier is ‘a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer.’ These are places where you can meet new and different *others* to connection remarkable ways.

ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing, the hosts attended to the inner strengths of each participant. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. We imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused (watch the film Posthumous, for a great comment on this) and more about the experience. And for those seeking training, it wasn’t about, one might guess, the expensive tuition fees that come with ho-hum professors (jaded people who’ve forgotten the meaning of their occupation—here I recommend Art School Confidential). Perhaps it was about the magic, if I let myself be uncool and optimistic, of Art. What it can do. How it connects us, across time, and distance. Let’s *make* something. Let’s play?
