Exhibition Tour
Stefano Harney and Tonika Sealy, “Ground Provisions Collective”
Friday, 10 October, 7.30pm–9.00 pm
The exhibition tour by Stefano Harney and Tonika Sealy relates directly to the approach of their collective, “Ground Provisions”, which curates art events as a political form 'from below,' with particular reference to the carnival traditions. They will address the mechanisms of regulation and improvisation in connection to Singapore and any city seeking status as an art capital.
Stefano Harney teaches ethics at Singapore Management University and co-author of “The Undercommons: fugitive planning and black stud”.
Tonika Sealy is one of the founding partners of “Ground Provisions”, a collective based in the Caribbean and working globally to produce art, education, and social change.
