LEAVING ROOM Closing Party Finnisage

We will be having a closing party (Finnisage) for LEAVING ROOM. Join us!

Date: 18th March 2018
Time: 4-9pm
Your Mother Gallery
91A Hindoo Road
Singapore 209126

There exist some familiarities in those spaces we call home. But there is hardly one home that is exactly the same as another.

Leaving Room is a wordplay on the living room, a room which is a shared space often used for relaxing and socialising in a residential home.

The works in this exhibition are made in the proximity to each artist’s living room. Each work explores each artist’s lived experiences and embody some form of lived resistances.

The exhibition brings these works into Your Mother Gallery. A gallery operated out of another artist’s living room. It is possible to think that the Leaving Room’s exhibition re-instates and perhaps re-constructs another living room by drawing these works together in Your Mother’s living room.

Leaving Room presents the works of:

Firhana Almuddin
Fiona Koh
Kheyton Lim ShiQuan
Nicholas Lim
Michelle Lim
Eugene Tan
Nicolette Teo

Rehearsal 2017


Rehearsal by Post-Museum, part of CITIES FOR PEOPLE NTU CCA Ideas Fest 2016/17

2 days and 2 nights urban camping

Rehearsal is a social experiment stemming from the urge to incite and foster public discussions in Singapore, addressing the city and how to organise collectively. Spaces for different groups to come together are lacking and only few opportunities exist for civil society groups and government sectors to meet and have open debates. Responding directly to the need for places that facilitate discussions and gatherings, Post-Museum‘s first Rehearsal, which took place at the Substation, invited people to spend time together and do something collectively over a 24-hour period.

Organised during CITIES FOR PEOPLE, Rehearsal is a parallel event that provides a place to further reflect on the topics discussed during the Ideas Fest, particularly in the Public Summit. This iteration of the Rehearsal will take the form of a campsite that invites the public to stay, eat, and live together over a period of two days and two nights. The space, to be built through a collective wood workshop using recycled materials from NTU CCA Singapore’s previous exhibitions, will include a kitchen, sleeping area, library, and a meditation space. Participants are asked to shape the site according to their activities and interests throughout the event period.

As such, what takes place during Rehearsal is a mix of planned activities and things that happen organically. Free and open to public (limited capacity). Please let us know the times when you would be able to join us by clicking through the Tickets Available link above!

Artists talks with Sam Durant and Ana Prvacki

The CCA is pleased to present two artists talks by our current artists in residence Sam Durant and Ana Prvacki.

Sam Durant is a multimedia artist whose works engage a variety of social, political, and cultural issues. Often referencing American history, his work explores the varying relationships between culture and politics, engaging subjects as diverse as the civil rights movement, southern rock music, and modernism. His work has been widely exhibited internationally and in the United States. He has had solo museum exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Dusseldorf, S.M.A.K., Ghent, Belgium and the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery in New Zealand. His work has been included in the Panamá, Sydney, Venice and Whitney Biennales. Durant shows with several galleries including Blum and Poe in Los Angeles, Paula Cooper Gallery in New York, Praz-Delavallade in Paris and Sadie Coles Gallery in London. In 2006 he compiled and edited a comprehensive monograph of Black Panther artist Emory Douglas’ work. His recent curatorial credits include Eat the Market at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Black Panther: the Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the New Museum in New York. He was a finalist for the 2008 Hugo Boss Prize.

In her videos, services, concoctions and drawings, Ana Prvacki uses a gently pedagogical and comedic approach in an attempt to reconcile etiquette and erotics. Her work has been included in many international exhibitions including dOCUMENTA 13, Sydney Biennial 2007, Singapore Biennial 2006, and the Turin Triennale 2005. She has developed projects for venues and institutions such as the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea (Turin), Smart Museum of Art (Chicago), Bloomberg HQ (NYC), Art in General (NYC), Artists Space (NYC), Umoca (Salt Lake City) and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Boston).

More than [show] business: Talk 8: Do Din (Two days): An experiment in co-producing urban knowledge

Do Din (Two days): An experiment in co-producing urban knowledge

In the month of December 2013, a community arts event titled Do Din unfolded in the city of Hyderabad, India. Do Din, literally meaning Two Days, was a multiplex event – with art installations, film screenings, talks, workshops, exhibits and theatrical performances. What was unique about this event was the fact that it occasioned a number of unlikely encounters – cartographers with environmental activists, artists with slum residents, architects and planners with residents of historic neighborhoods and scrap dealers with economists. If thematically, Do Din was about engaging with circulation of images, memories, materials and exploring the nooks and crannies of the collective consciousness, the event was also conceived so as to performatively shift several imagined centres of gravity of the city.

This talk will draw on the work of a group of urban researchers who made this possible: a group which under the banner of Hyderabad Urban Lab has been attempting to put their academic research skills at the service of urban communities. Hyderabad is a four hundred year old city which was a princely state until 1948 when it became a part of independent India. After nearly five decades of slow and incremental growth, the city sprang into global IT labour markets in the late 1990s. In the last two decades, the city witnessed a rapid growth which put tremendous pressure on its infrastructure. Hyderabad Urban Lab is an attempt to rebuild a sense of embeddedness and belonging at the same time as reformulating questions of equity for the city’s multifarious communities. The talk will be illustrated with examples of the kind of research that takes collective resources of the city as its starting point.

About the Speaker

Anant Maringanti is the director of Hyderabad Urban Lab. After obtaining PhD in geography from the University of Minnesota, he spent two years in Singapore at the National University of Singapore as a postdoctoral fellow. During the two years, he was a familiar face to many at the Post Museum, where he anchored the Rowell Road Reading Group. A long time resident of Hyderabad, Anant Maringanti brings together an urban sensibility forged over three decades through education in technology, design, and social sciences and lived experience of working alongside artists, film makers, activists and academic scholars. He is widely published in academic and non academic journals. His current research and teaching interests include the law and the city in the global south.

Myths II enters the silent spaces of The Singapore Story and brings to light fragments of other pasts. Thum Ping Tjin deconstructs three myths: Singapore’s vulnerability, the government’s role in economic development and the meritocratic system. Ho Chi Tim uncovers traces of social welfare policy in our history. Wong Chee Meng argues that our seemingly ancient cultural heritage is actually shaped by colonial and postcolonial engineering.

Trace-Displace by Lu Huijun

Continuum (Automatic Itineraries) by Yen Phang

A performance installation. The whole project consists of 250 tiles, which are oil paintings on birchwood panel. Each panel is roughly postcard-sized (4″x6″, 6″x6″, 6″x8″). These pieces were borne out of a daily routine of meditation and painting to explore my feelings of dislocation and physical discomfort while I was living in Montreal during a particularly long winter. It was a concerted effort to reconnect with my own physical sensations on the one hand, as well as my painting practice on the other.

More than [show] business: Talk 9: Towards Many Worlds: How to Create Imaginative Spaces with Role-Playing Games – A Talk by Tan Shao Han

In this talk, Shao Han will share his plans of using games to foster a new culture of learning in Singapore. He will present some of his experiences with creating imaginary situations with his co-players of tabletop role-playing games (TRPGs) such as Dungeons and Dragons. He will also discuss how TRPG players can learn and reflect on various matters as they play together, and become better acquainted with perspectives and situations different from those in their everyday lives.

Shao Han observes these gaming experiences can be used to nurture and hone the imaginations of the players, and he believes these games can be used by individuals to improve their awareness of themselves, deepen their empathy towards others, as well as increase their knowledge and understanding of the world. He believes these qualities are very hard to teach in a more conventionally pedagogical fashion, and believes it is is instead more conducive for individuals to learn such traits through experience, reflection, and discussion. Hence, in pursuit of this goal, he uses TRPGs to create imaginary worlds which players can explore.

Shao Han also understands there are many obstacles which await him in his goal, and will also discuss these challenges and some of his plans for overcoming them. In spite of these difficulties, Shao Han remains optimistic that he can help to make things change for the better.

Shao Han tutors Southeast Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore, and also used to teach History and Literature at the secondary school level. He has also worked as a researcher and project manager at the Learning Sciences Laboratory in the Nanyang Technological University, and has taught private tuition. He thinks this wide range of experiences in different aspects of education has helped to broaden his perspective, and believes that he is better prepared for the tasks ahead. Shao Han is also an avid player of different games, and he shamelessly and voraciously consumes vast quanitites of popular culture about giant robots and ridiculously melodramatic superheroes.

More than [show] business: Talk 10: Seeing in the Dark: Lenses for a Post-PRISM Landscape – A Talk by Honor Harger

The recent scandals relating to the NSA, the revelation of the PRISM surveillance programme, and the treatment of whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning, have revealed how fundamentally intertwined our civil liberties are with our technological infrastructures. These systems can both enable, and threaten, both our privacy and our security. Ubiquitous networked infrastructures create radical new creative opportunities for a coming generation of makers and users, whilst also presenting us with major social dilemmas.

This talk will show why this matters to anyone working within culture today, and will specifically look at how artists working with technology, and technologists working creatively, are some of the best and most useful guides we have to navigate what I refer to as “the post-PRISM Landscape”.
