An Exhibition of Experimental Travelogues by Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, School of Visual Arts Degree Students NAFA Gallery 1

9 每 12 Feb 2006
The wish to see the world by travelling is a universal phenomenon. In this regard, the travelogue provides an important means to document and reflect on tour experiences, highlighting the value of travel not just in discovering what is out there, but also what is in here (who we are).
This is evident in a host of literature and other cultural practices related to travel: Homer*s Odyssey, Wu Ch*eng-en*s Journey to the West, Jonathan Swift*s Gulliver*s Travels and today*s immensely popular television series Amazing Race, to name a few.
Have Logue, Will Travel is an exhibition of experimental travelogues by Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, School of Visual Arts degree students.
It will open on Wednesday, 8 February 2006 at NAFA Gallery 1, and continues till Sunday, 12 February 2006. It aims to explore and showcase contemporary expressions in the age-old genre of travelogue, through the perspectives of the visual artists.
On show is a collection of over 40 pieces of experimental travelogues of diverse art forms: travel journal, artist*s book, magazine, video, sculpture and installation.
The participants are from 7 franchised degree programmes namely:
MA Contemporary Practice, BA (Hons) Exhibition & Retail Design, BA (Hons) Fine Art: Painting & Drawing, BA (Hons) Fine Art with Contemporary Writing, BA (Hons) Interior Design, and BA (Hons) Multimedia Design, from University of Huddersfield, United Kingdom and BA (Hons) Graphic Communication from Loughborough University, United Kingdom.
Alongside this exhibition are an award presentation and a dialogue session.
During the opening ceremony, one Outstanding Travelogue Award will be presented to a participant from each of the degree pathways, whose works are judged to be of creative excellence. From these, one will be awarded the Overall Best Travelogue Award.
A dialogue session on the links between travel and the visual arts will be held in the gallery on Friday, 10 February 2006, 2.30 每 5.30pm.
