Month Of Photography Asia 2008
PHOTOGRAPHY GOES TO THE MOVIES!
Month of Photography Asia Festival 2008 explores the relationship between photography and cinema.
Month of Photography Asia (MOPAsia), the annual Singapore-based photography festival, returns in 2008 with the theme of ‘Still/Moving: Photography & Cinema’ with exhibitions and talks that explore the relationship between two art forms, photography and cinema, which share a common heritage and history. In its sixth year, MOPAsia 2008 will be on from 13 June to 20 July and features several exhibitions in various venues: The Magic of Cinema – A Magnum Photos Exhibition at The Cathay, Method by Sean Lee at Post-Museum, HanoiHaiku by Sherman Ong at 2902 Gallery, Alain Fleischer: Time Exposures at the Singapore Art Museum and Out of Focus at Night & Day Gallery and Starbound by Marcel Thomas at the Alliance Francaise de Singapour. Each of these exhibitions addresses the theme through different genres of photography, at times presenting a documentary approach to the notion of photography and cinema and at other times engaging the theme conceptually in its approach to ideas of time, space and movement.
