The Van Gogh Alive exhibit, at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore. You can read more about it here. His paintings were scanned and projected as videos on giant screens, with music playing, interpersed with photographs of his family and his inspiration. It was an immersive way of experiencing works we may have seen before, or find familiar - sometimes the enture screen is just filled with his brushstrokes. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to rove around the exhibition on Saturday after hours, feeling like I had the whole place to myself.
What was the occasion? It was a party to mark the close of ScreenSingapore, a film festival. I was the guest of a friend, and we were both infinitely more excited about being at the museum for the first time (it opened recently), and feeling like the works were only on show for us, than we were about the actual soirée. There is also a terrific Salvador Dali exhibit going on, and we skipped the fashion show to linger over the exhibition, generally having a ball of a time because when you are the only people there, there's no need for the usual hushed tip-toeing at a museum or gallery.
Anyway, my outfit.
I hurriedly snapped this on Saturday morning while the light was good, before I changed out of it to do, you know, normal things. The jacket is far better looking than it appears in the photo - single-button, nice drape, slim lapels. At the event, I did the fashion thing of draping the jacket over my shoulders, just for fun. I felt thoroughly comfortable in a sea of gowns and cocktail dresses, and consequently, it was easy to be sociable, and do all the professional things expected of you at such functions. It felt right.
