The group showcase, ‘Dancing On The Spot’, references Ong Keng Sen’s interview on the condition of the Arts in Singapore, and Walter De Maria’s essay, Meaningless Work (1960). Bridging these two seemingly disparate textual sources, this exhibition considers the position of art making in relation to purpose, meaning and societal relevance.
This exhibition, which brings together 7 artists of varied practices, seeks to address new territories where presented works re-question legitimacy, influence and its seriousness.
The participating artists are Dzaki Safaruan, Khairul Ikhwan, Lai Yu Tong, Nhawfal Jumaat, Ryan Ben Lee, Tay Ining and Zulkhairi Zulkiflee.
Venue: Mettle Work, 50 Lorong 17 Geylang, Singapore 388570
