Works of art presented in public spaces are increasingly viewed from the perspective of place-making, a holistic approach that engages the diverse functions of a location and its wider context. As a practice, place-making integrates urban planning, landscape architecture, and cultural management.

Culture City. Culture Scape. documents a major public art commission for a newly designed business park in Singapore, Mapletree Business City II, featuring works by international and local artists Dan Graham, Tomás Saraceno, Yinka Shonibare CBE, and Zul Mahmod, which draw upon regional histories and urban politics.

The curators’ conversations with the artists and with Edmund Cheng, Chairman of Mapletree Investments Pte Ltd, as well as reflective essays on the development process and the potential of art in public spaces, lend context on the multiple points of view that must be reconciled to create meaningful public spaces and explore the role art can play in public education and social corporate investment.
