Activating sites around the district, Port/raits of Tanjong Pagar is a public art trail responding to an area that has seen a dramatic transformation over the decades into one of the largest seaports in the world today.
Inviting perspectives from six contemporary art practitioners, each project is an artistic response to the historicity and/or present-day experiences of their respective sites.
Intersecting interests of urban planning, materiality, boundaries, the nonhuman and kinship, the works are collectively framed by the development of this locale – the economic aspirations and port traits embedded within the land on which they stand on. Utilising the language of the everyday – i.e. familiar sights, sounds, words, gestures, symbols – Port/raits of Tanjong Pagar offers new encounters with the neighbourhood in unexpected ways.
Venue: Various locations in Tanjong Pagar neighbourhood
When: 29 Apr 2023 - 9 Mar 2025,
