The Air Conditioned Recession: A Singapore Survey

With Singapore facing its deepest economic recession, there is a growing sense amongst the people of this island republic that their government cannot always be expected to provide all the answers to their shared problems, that oftentimes, the answers lie within themselves. This also means a loosening of state strictures that have hitherto dominated social political debate within the republic. This loosening has also been hastened by the space that the internet allows.

The Air Conditioned Recession – A Singapore Survey, will attempt to address some of the underlying issues that remain under the surface by mining existing works by Singaporean artists created in the past few years.

Participating Artists: Alicia Neo, Amanda Heng, Alan Oei, Cheo Chai-hiang, Ghazi Alqudcy & Ezzam Rahman, Jason Lim, Jason Wee, Jimmy Ong, Jing Quek, Junaidi Waee, Lynn Lu, Michael Lee, Safaruddin Abdul Hamid, Tang Da Wu and Tan Seow Wei.

The Air Conditioned Recession is a partner programme of SINGAPORE ART SHOW 09.

Partner event: Checkpoint Theatre presents Recalling Mother from 26 to 30 August, at 8pm nightly at the gallery. Written and performed by Claire Wong & Noorlinah Mohamed. For more information, please visit www.checkpoint-theatre.org.

The exhibition opens until August 30, 2009. For more information, please click here.
