[Party of Five] is a Halloween visual art exhibition by Artblovk pop-up gallery, featuring an illustrated smorgasbord inspired by role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, final fantasy and more!
Inviting illustrators based in Singapore and creators in arts and the industry to design an adventurer avatar in any medium, be it an illustration, written text or even sculpture, which will be randomly grouped together in parties of five to respond to an Ai-generated artwork as a 'final boss' of sorts.
Inspiring, cheeky and wondrous, the exhibition aims to question audiences how narratives are formed through the presentation of randomised, juxtaposed artwork, and invites participants and visitors alike to construct a narrative framework through the experience of the gallery and its dialogue between the grouped artworks.
