We had been planning to visit this exhibition since March when it started during the school holidays but didn’t get the chance. Luckily we were able to make a visit in the last week and felt great that we went to this beautiful place for kids.
Imaginarium : A voyage of big ideas is the new edition of Singapore Art Museum’ much loved annual contemporary art exhibition for children, begun in 2010 and now in its fifth year. In the spirit of SG50 celebration this year’s exhibition is inspired by the crescent moon on the Singapore flag, a symbol of young nation on the rise with the capacity to dream big and think large. Imaginarium offers creative space featuring artists from Singapore and the region.
We Built this Estate by Chiang Xu Xiang
For a child the world is a giant playground.This work invites children to be architects, builders and master planners of their own housing estate and city skyline. With housing blocks designed like Tetris pieces, you can imagine and create whatever you feel like doing it here. Specially toddlers enjoy this space a lot, so colorful and bright giving you the feel of a playground.
Doodling at its best and everywhere right from stairs to ceiling !
There were series of short stories running on Level 2 but kids just watched couple of stories.
Imagin-a-doodle by Band of Doodlers
With Illustrations sprawling across the walls and winding up the four levels of the building.
Here we are !!
Kids enjoyed a lot here and we have spent the maximum time so that they can show their creativity!
Who want to miss an opportunity when you can doodle not just on a sheet but got yourself an entire room. Kaira is looking at what big bro is upto -maybe I can copy him !
Both busy in their own world !
How much I wish to do like this – what a beautiful world kids have got !
Everyone should know we were here
This was moonroom where we did some origami art by making a aircraft and walls were all coloured.
Let’s make ! Studio by Izziyana Suhaimi
This was really beautiful room to see the sewing, embroidery, craft using textiles, weaving etc. We just did this pom pom as Kaira wants to use needle, scissors. So this was the easiest we could do here.
Kiko’s Secrets By Kumkum Fernando
A space to broaden our minds by entering the magical worlds hidden within three secret boxes and beyond.
Greenroom II : Interstellar Overdrive by Vincent Twardzik Ching
Aayan was super excited to visit this room for his love with the word “Interstellar”. Bicycles, LEDs, Stereo equipment activated only through interaction between the artwork and the visitors, this work prompts us to think of how our future cities might be powered, and how this might change our lives.
It was so beautiful to see the block lighten up when you pedal faster and faster.
Both of them were trying their hands on listening to different sounds.
Dream House by Lee Jeeyoung
A home filled with candy is surely everyone’s dream house- a delightful space where our inner wishes for the future can be projected. A home filled of lollipops and candies everywhere you look around.
A Chandelier full of candies !!
You can plant your own candies on the trees- Wow ! What a dream house !!
It was a beautiful experience for kids to see the different artwork and to use their imagination to discover in creating a new world. All the sections were very well designed to create a lot of interest in kids of all age.
