M1 SINGAPORE FRINGE FESTIVAL 2017: ART & SKIN
MESSAGE FROM M1 LIMITED
Welcome to the 13th edition of the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2017, presenting a collection of cutting-edge, evocative and passionate works embracing this year’s theme Art & Skin.
From the colour of our skin to society’s definition of beauty and repulsiveness, we seem destined to be labelled as soon as we are born into this world. Throw in culture, beliefs, intelligence, prejudices, cruelty, kindness, charisma, and more, and our skin becomes just another addition to the mix. And yet, without uttering a word, it is our appearance that makes the first, and sometimes, most indelible impression.
With the Festival’s 14 works from nine countries, I hope you will enjoy the exciting events on offer, and that they can help you forge a deeper understanding of what skin can represent.
