Sing Lit Station and Sarah and Schooling are proud to present an exhibition titled Out of Print.

Curated by poet Daryl Lim Wei Jie and presented by Sing Lit Station, Out of Print showcases the history and early development of Singapore literature alongside modern graphic design techniques, shining the spotlight on significant literary works that had left an impact on our cultural landscape.

Visitors to the exhibition will discover the historical importance of 16 titles published between 1965 and 1995 and appreciate contemporary reinterpretations of their covers art directed by Sarah and Schooling. Combining various media and design approaches such as typography, illustration, photography and printing techniques, the artworks inject fresh energy, curiosity and interest in past literary works that might be forgotten in our present-day understanding of local literature.

We also have five exhibition tours (45 mins each) scheduled on the following dates and times:
– 9 Mar (Fri), 8pm, with Sarah and Schooling
– 10 Mar (Sat), 2pm and 4pm, with Sing Lit Station
– 11 Mar (Sun), 2pm and 4pm, with Sing Lit Station

This event is supported and commissioned by the Singapore Book Council (for #BuySingLit 2018), and The Arts House (for the TEXTures weekend). It is also a partner programme of Singapore Design Week.
