Cross-Cultural Art Dose is a complementary programme of The Gift exhibition by the Singapore Art Museum.
Art can help us to connect with our feelings, promote empathy and show compassion to ourselves and others. Take some time out for a mindful journey through art and history, exploring slow-looking techniques and reflection. Find ways to respond creatively, and perhaps discuss observations and insights with others.
Led by Danielle Gullotta from the Art Gallery of New South Wales (Australia), Professor Katherine Boydell from the Black Dog Institute (Australia) and Dr Lim Chye Hong from the Singapore Art Museum, Cross-Cultural Art Dose is an online art experience with your well-being as its primary focus.
25 September: Tuning into nature
Observing the natural world closely with all of our senses can have significant healing effects. Take in all nature has to offer through a selection of artworks from The Gift, the Singapore Art Museum and the Art Gallery of New South Wales and discover how to focus our attention on being present.
2 October: Give & Take
Taking time out to contemplate familiar relationships and shared experiences can nourish us physically and emotionally. Reflect on the acts of giving and taking through exploring a selection of artworks from The Gift, the Singapore Art Museum and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
9 October: Embodiment
Viewing the body as an embodiment of memories helps us to become more aware of our ability to feel our experiences. Become more attuned to bodily sensations and develop your ability to be aware of how we are feeling through an exploration of selected artworks from The Gift, the Singapore Art Museum as well as the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
All the sessions are at 11am Singapore time.
