Cinerama: Art and the Moving Image in Southeast Asia 

Cinerama brings together 10 artists and collectives from across Southeast Asia who work through the medium of the moving image. Spanning hand-drawn animation to immersive video installations, the works explore the history of the genre, its current-day expressions, and potential for the future.

While offering opportunities to reminisce the golden age of movie-making, the exhibition also dissects the filmic picture to uncover its constituents and constructions as well. In doing so, it retraces developments from the very first moving images, to the expanded cinema experience of today.

The range of works here examine issues of individual and collective memory, identity and politics, closely mirroring contemporary ways of being, and offering insights into what the future of cinema, video, and the realm of moving images, may come to be.
