The largest archaeological excavation ever mounted in Singapore, which took place beside the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) last year, uncovered some 3.5 tonnes of artefacts. Enter the gritty world of the archaeologist, and photographers who documented the dig, through exhibition talks and photography workshops that are part of the programming around The Dig, an exhibition at ACM in conjunction with Singapore HeritageFest (SHF).
Participants will experiment with 35mm film photography and learn the basics of shooting in manual mode through exercises, demonstrations, and walkthroughs happening on 29 April and 6 May. An introduction to cyanotype printing on 13 May allows participants to create images without a camera.
Your ticket on 13 May* entitles you to
- Free admission to the museum
- One complimentary beverage
- Entry to talk by one of the photographers of the excavation, Ung Ruey Loon
- Entry and all materials to cyanotype printing workshop by Joseph Kwok
