NTU CCA Singapore presents Fish Story which will be shown for the first time in Southeast Asia. This is a comprehensive review of the late US artist, Allan Sekula, a renowned photographer, theorist, photography historian and critic. Fish Story, one of Allan Sekula’s major works created over a five-year period, explores the historical, sociopolitical, aesthetic, and literary connections of far-flung port cities such as New York, Rotterdam, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Seoul. Fish Story looks at the ocean as a key point of globalisation and engages directly with the history of Singapore as a major historical port in colonial and post-colonial times. In addition, The Forgotten Space, a film essay by Allan Sekula and Nöel Burch will premiere during the exhibition.
