The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the cult science fiction comedy series created in 1978 has been adapted into a stage show, a novel, a computer game, a Hollywood film, a comic book and even a series of towels, making it a multi-media phenomenon. And next month, for the first time, 42 Singapore based artists will show their intergalactic visions in a series of artworks inspired by the famous novel.
The show, curated by Steve Lawler, brings together a wealth of local talent. From pixel pushers to product designers, all fans of the mind-bending world of Douglas Adams. Guests to the free exhibition can expect to see some bizarre and warped creations from this new wave of visual artists. Each piece will be for sale in exclusive limited runs.
