Title

Culture City. Culture Scape. Public Art Trail at Mapletree Business City II

Description

Our upcoming guided tour is an excellent way to get inspired and unwind in the company of art. Enjoy a well-deserved cup of coffee and snack while we walk you through the artworks nestled in the lush compounds of Mapletree Business City II (MBC II).

Themed Culture City. Culture Scape., this public art project, commissioned by Mapletree and curated by NTU CCA Singapore comprises works by internationally renowned artists Dan Graham (United States), Zulkifle Mahmod (Singapore), Tomás Saraceno (Argentina/Germany), and Yinka Shonibare (Nigeria/United Kingdom). Inspired by the idea of expanded sculptural environments, the artworks explore the interplay between landscape, architecture, and the broader social and economic environments they are placed in. More than being monumental or site-specific, each work alters or permeates its local context to invite visitors to a broader, richer engagement.
