Women of Art and Science
9 Nov, 2020 – 27 Nov, 2020
This November, ArtScience Museum is dedicating a special event to the women of art and science with a specially curated line-up of onsite and online programmes from now till 27 November.
Women of Art and Science sees the museum celebrating some of the wonder women of art and science including sculptor Ruth Asawa, artist Hilma af Klint, architect Zaha Hadid and more through its flagship programmes, ArtScience on Screen, ArtScience Late at Home, virtual tour and workshop. These are some of the grittiest, strongest, and trailblazing figures who have defied expectations, genres and subverted the idea of the patriarchal genius.
ArtScience on Screen: New Ways of Seeing shines the spotlight on three artists – Ruth Asawa, Anna Campbell Bliss and Hilma af Klint – who defied the notion of gender and genre in their practice. Exploring the fields of art, science, mathematics and technology, these women continued to produce a prolific body of work which have encouraged many to consider new creative perspectives and reexamined the historical art rules and principles that often fail to allow alternative voices to be considered.
Admission is free for all film screenings and visitors are strongly encouraged to pre-book their tickets to each screening via https://ticket.marinabaysands.com/mbs/booking/asos2020
On 19 November, ArtScience Late at Home will be headlined by Tania De Rozario, Marylyn Tan and Natalie Wang in a performance that draws inspiration from their writings and portrays the unique experiences of a woman today.
ArtScience Museum’s Virtual Tour: Women of STEAM, will be recognising some of the works of women who have made major contributions in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). Visitors can also look forward to creating their own Zaha Hadid-inspired pop-up card in Make Your Own: Architecture-Inspired Pop-Up Card online programme.
