The Lab: Culture City. Culture Scape. Art, Urban Change and the Public Sphere
31 Aug 2019 - 02 Nov 2019
In partnership with Mapletree Pte Ltd., ​Culture City. Culture Scape. ​is a public art education programme launched in 2017. A first of its kind in Singapore, the programme features ​a series of newly commissioned public art works by Dan GrahamZulkiflie MahmodTomás Saraceno and Yinka Shonibare MBE, nestled at Mapletree Business City II​ , and aims to bring the arts closer to the communities.

Conceived as a research presentation at NTU CCA Singapore’s The Lab, ​Culture City. Culture Scape. Art, Urban change and the Public Sphere ​engages with the making of the public art trail at Mapletree Business City II in the context of Privately-Owned Public Spaces (POPS) together with other developments of Public Art in Singapore. The works of the Public Art Trail are animated through augmented reality in a unique spatial configuration. The research presentation reflects on emerging discourses such as Future Asian Spaces or Art in the Public Sphere and situates the interconnectedness of cultural politics, urban developments and economic conditions in today’s Singapore. A same-titled Public Art Education Summit in October will reflect on the professional changes and challenges of Art in the Public Sphere with a focus on community engagement, social (corporate) responsibility, and new artistic approaches in an ever-expanding urban setting.
