Unseen Art Initiatives presents Move For?ward (Unseen: Inside Out), an interactive art installation at National Gallery Singapore, as part of Light to Night Festival 2022: New Ways Of Seeing, Thinking And Being. The art installation will be open to the public from 14 Jan to 3 Feb 2022.

Audience members are invited to navigate and negotiate a maze of colourful ropes, while reading or listening to the stories of 12 visually impaired individuals who inspired and co-created this unique experience through the process of Unseen: Inside Out - a disability-led project by visually impaired artist Claire Teo and artists Kira Lim, Clarence Chung, Samuel Woo, in collaboration with 12 visually impaired co-creators
Presented by Unseen Art Initiatives, this project aims to encourage conversations and question the public’s perspectives and assumptions about disability.
