A City of Books is an exhibition at Bras Basah Complex for Buy SingLit, an industry-led movement to celebrate stories from Singapore. The book accompanying it is a compendium of indexes that also pays homage to the building’s reputation as a city of books. Embedded within these lists are the stories of three bookshops in the Complex, and three artists’ encounters with them. Indexes of images map the experience of each artist in the different stores.
With the theme A State In Play, SingaPlural 2018 is a celebration of the indeterminacy of process and the stage of experimentation and work even before design sets in. The design direction draws inspiration from the process of prototyping and experimentation. Line elements feature across the festival identity’s as a connective and adaptable visual device that is presented in different configurations.
