Works in new visual art show look to theatre and adopt elements from it

Conscious coupling of the visual arts and theatre is in the spotlight at the Centre For Contemporary Art in Gillman Barracks. Its latest show, Theatrical Fields, timed to coincide with the ongoing Singapore International Festival of Arts, highlights the dynamic exchange and overlaps between theatre and the visual arts, particularly performance, film and video.

The exhibition comprises six video installations by seminal artists who have influenced contemporary art and its discourse, among them British artist and film-maker Isaac Julien, whose video installation Vagabondia (2000) formed part of his nomination for the Turner Prize in 2001; and American performance and video art pioneer Joan Jonas, whose multimedia installation Lines In The Sand (2002) was commissioned for the Documenta exhibition of modern and contemporary art in 2002
