[ARTS & CULTURE]
Tues to Fri (by appointment), Sat 2pm-3pm (selected exhibitions only – phone for details)
Through the motifs of spacing and difference, this exhibition features works by the artist Ng Eng Teng produced between 1958 and 2001. The title of the exhibition tkaes as its point of reference a series of sculptures developed by the artist during the 1990s. While the series 1+1=1 has not been seen as characteristic of Ng Eng Teng’s practice, here it is proposed as an alternative point of entry into the artist’s body of works. His most recent work, The Last Masterpiece, is completed posthumously and is presented as part of this exhibition.
Concrete Island (Through November 2016)
Taking as its points of departure J.G Ballard’s novel Concrete Island (1974) and Tan Pin Pin’s film 80km/h (2004), this project features works and documents guided by the metaphor of Singapore as a “concrete island”. It proposes to think of this city as less a built environment, than a condition of movement, exchange, and intensities.
Double Vision (Through 5 November 2016)
Double Vision is a selection of video works and experimental films that are inspired by the affinities between the Philippines and Vietnam in the history of the American wars in the Pacific. While the Philippines stood as proxy in the re-enactment of the Vietnam War in films produced during the Cold War period, it was also historically situated as a proto-site that delivered the United States’ growing influence in the region. Videos & artist films by: David Griggs, Gym Lumbera, Miko Revereza, Roxlee, Shireen Seno, Angel Velasco Shaw, Stephanie Syjuco and Kidlat Tahimik.
