  1. Future of Imagination is in its 8th installment this year.

  1. We have invited more than 200 artists from 30 countries so far. It is a platform of high quality performances with a gathering of international, regional and local performance artists with the sole intention of promoting performance art.

  1. This year, we have invited artists from three post and present communist countries to present performance works.

  1. As part of our expanding effort to increase communication, exchanges and networking amongst the invited artists and promoting performance art in Singapore, each year we incorporate a dialogue session at the end of the event for exchanges between artists, audience and invited art writers/critics and curators. Title of this year’s symposium is Solid Air - comparative reflections on the intertwining of performance art and politics.

  1. In addition to the exciting live performances and symposium, we have included an exhibition of performance art relics, Reliqvarivm, by curator Ms Daniela Beltrani.
