“Factory of Tomorrow,” happening from March 16 to July 14, will gather the works of 19 Asian artists, ranging from sculptures, textile works, immersive installations, video displays, and artworks with themes such as climate change, textile technology, diversity, and many more.

Meanwhile, the “Misfitted: Unspoken Stories of Tailoring” exhibition, which opened on March 2, will introduce local textiles tailor-made for different purposes. It will also feature a new interactive experience, “Illumin-Loom,” where visitors can operate a virtual loom and create their own illuminated textile patterns, among other displays.
