'Obit', a beloved expression used by the Malay community in Singapore, refers to a sense of style that is offbeat, sometimes campy that swings between bold and gaudy. How has this very style provided a channel for both self-expression and self-discovery? Where does it sit in a world infatuated with presenting authenticity?

Return to a beautiful time of multicoloured tights, neon lights, and swinging vibes with Rizman Putra as your spirited guide traversing static and excavating the history of 'obit'.

This year’s Keynote Commissions invites four artists to create unique personal responses to the festival’s theme. We invite you to explore and indulge in the different aspects of Guilt and Pleasure each project reveals.
