The White Night

The White Night was a community art exhibition resulting from an eight-week participatory art workshop with the residents of The White Building.

Organised by Sa Sa Art Projects and Incidental, the workshop aimed to explore local culture and issues at The White Building.

The project worked with local young residents, giving skills in photography, sound and mixed media. Students were then encouraged to interact and collaborate with other residents in the neighbourhood to produce works of their chosen topics.

The workshop resulted in a series of public galleries, co-organised by the students, occupying spaces within Sa Sa Art Projects and The White Building complex. Also featured during The White Night is video work by Sa Sa's artist in residence Masaru Iwai. Masaru organised a 'cleaning day' with The White Building residents to clean the stairways, through which he established a relationship with a foreign community.
