Hello again

So sorry for the radio silence.

We’ve been busy with Post-PopUp, which is coming to a close at the end of this month. Wow, 4 months have flown by!

Come join us for Singapore Really Really Free Market 32, in Post-PopUp, this coming Sat (25 Oct) from 2-7pm. This would be one of the last things we are doing there and it should be a fun one. Come by for D&D game, juggling and tarot card reading, etc. More info here.

Besides SRRFM32, come see Koh Nguang How’s excellent exhibition entitled “Shui Tit Sing – 100 Years of an Artist through his Archives”. It’s an important show about an almost forgotten artist, and 2 artists, John Low and Cai Qin, are intervening with their work. It’s an interesting experience, don’t miss it. The exhibition is only on until Sun (26 Oct); more info here.

Well, hope to see you this Sat in Post-PopUp.

Otherwise, stay tuned for more info on Awaken the Dragon, which is coming up next month!

! OPEN CALL !

Can Space Speak?

More than [show] business: Post-PopUp at CCA
13 June – 1 October 2014
Studio #01-07, Block 38 Malan Road, Gillman Barracks

More than [show] business is a collaborative project between CCA – Centre for Contemporary Art and Post–Museum. This collaboration is conceived as a platform for exploring different curatorial formats and ways of presenting and distributing art.

We are looking for proposals from individuals and groups who will use the space as a platform for cultural production and activity. How can a space be inhabited? How can a space respond to multiple uses, shift identity and open up to different forms of engagement? How can a space produce context? How can one negotiate with the inherent restrictions in using an institutional space within a temporary framework? How open is an open space?

Proposals will be selected on a basis of how to use a space in a generative and critical nature.

Please send us your ideas and proposals at admin@post-museum.org! We embrace various formats for activities.

Proposals of a maximum of 500 words due on 4 July 2014.

Proposals will be selected on the basis of content, practicality and feasibility. The selected proposals will unfold throughout July, August and September.

The Post-PopUp is hosted within one of the CCA artists’ studios as a site for events, happenings, artistic experiments, hanging out and spontaneity. The programme will unfold in several episodes, bringing together institutional, curatorial and artistic gestures. More than [show] business is a space that could be tested for a future of co-constituted creative spaces and artistic communities in Singapore, looking at institution building in tandem with artistic practice. Going beyond exhibition making as artistic output, More than [show] business at Post-PopUp at CCA invites those to engage with other aspects involved in artistic production, the discursive event, the community group and the overnight show.
