Abbas, 45 Years in Photography

Venue: National Museum of Singapore, Exhibition Gallery, Basement
Date: 18 (Sat) June - 18 (Sun) September 2011
Time: 1000 - 1800 hours

As a member of the prestigious photo agency Magnum since 1981, acclaimed photographer Abbas has roamed the world for 45 years, covering major political and social events, and publishing his works widely in world magazines and newspapers. Through his early photojournalistic and other major works such as the Iranian Revolution and the Islamic world (before and after the September 11 incident), Abbas has shown his dedication to the struggles within different societies in this rapidly globalising world, with an emphasis on religion defined by him as culture rather than faith.

Abbas, born in Iran in 1944 and later moved to Paris, shares his thoughts and perspectives in this first retrospective exhibition of 133 visually striking black and white photographs, and four audio-visual clips.

Memory - Superhistory

Venue: L4 ION Art Gallery, ION Orchard
Date: 29 (Wed) June - 08 (Fri) July 2011
Time: 1000 - 2200 hours

Price: Free admission

Description

A less literal approach of MEMORY is taken with up-and-coming Indonesian photographer Agan Harahap, whose Superhistory exhibition playfully leads to a rather deconstructionist understanding of the relationship between photography and memory, forcing us to rethink history and the way we remember the past.

I went to the Memory Requiem at NAFA yesterday and it is disheartening to see that for the Month of Photography Asia, no camera taking is allowed for the exhibition.

Many of the visitors were asking whether we can take photos of the exhibition, the security guards were telling that the order was from NAFA, no camera.
