The ANNEX – Asia hub (Powered by Havas) launches in Singapore through a series of events, the first entitled #SingaporeNeverSleeps Vol.1 featuring an art and music event by Brandon Breaux (Artist to Chance The Rapper) that explores how our identities are deeply tied to our environment and objects therein.
The show titled Who Else But Us will be comprised of paintings on paper and canvas that collectively speak to the theme, combining portraiture and imagery of related objects, examining their relationships through a surrealist framework. The goal of the show is to shine the light on the importance of authoring our own narratives and how doing so can cause a change of perception at the moment.
Collaborators for the project include Annex US’s Jason Peterson (US), Annex Asia’s Le Messie (Singapore), DJ Koflow (Singapore), and Artist Samantha Lo (Singapore). There will be a mini-doc that focuses on preparation for the exhibition followed by a talk by Brandon.
The opening event will take place on 24 May at Kilo Lounge and the exhibition will take place at TAKSU Galleries from 25 May to 27 May. There will also be collaboration merchandise with the Chicago Bulls releasing at the event.
