Pictures at an (SEA) Exhibition is a project conceived by Robert CASTEELS that combines painting, poetry and music. 6 composers Robert CASTEELS, Joyce KOH, HO Chee Kong, HOH Chung Shih, John SHARPLEY and Eric WATSON each chose a painting from our long-term exhibition Between Declarations and Dreams: Art of Southeast Asia since the 19th Century, after which they selected or wrote poetry in response to it. They also composed new original a cappella work for vocal ensemble.
