APRIL"S GONNA BE AWESOME: ART SHOWS IN SG and HK
Launching April 16th (thru to April 21st) @ BLOODGROUP+ Space (32 Aliwal Street, Singapore),The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Exhibition ~ a follow up to ▲ Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the cult science fiction comedy series created in 1978 has been adapted into a stage show, a novel, a computer game, a Hollywood film, a comic book and even a series of towels, making it a multi-media phenomenon. And next month, for the first time, 42 Singapore based artists will show their intergalactic visions in a series of artworks inspired by the famous novel.
The show, curated by Steve Lawler, brings together a wealth of local talent. From pixel pushers to product designers, all fans of the mind-bending world of Douglas Adams. Guests to the free exhibition can expect to see some bizarre and warped creations from this new wave of visual artists. Each piece will be for sale in exclusive limited runs.
Says curator Steve Lawler, “By using a famous cult book like this we hope to broaden the spectrum of design which a larger demographic can relate to.”

"Dead Art Comes Alive"
To celebrate the 1st Anniversary of ufoArtgallery & 3rd Anniversary of alivenotdead.com, we are proud to present Dead Art Comes Alive, a special project which consists of 9 young talented artists with a fresh idea of 3 cycles of group exhibitions, all participated artists are chosen from alivenotdead.com
ufoArtgallery & alivenotdead.com share the same idea as they act as a platform to encourage artists to show their creativity. There is no "should" or "should not" in art, Dead Art Comes Alive aims to grow the audience attention to the yet-attended artists, and is a showcase of how these young artists express themselves through their artworks, it allows the audience to see the diversities and energy of some so-called deviant art, that can be witty, melancholic, mad, fun, humourous, blue and even creepy.
