Reloaded, Art in Public Space Singapore – Lecture by Priyageetha Dia and Seelan Palay

Description

28 Sep 2019, Sat 4.00 PM - 5:00 PM The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

With Priyageetha Dia (artist, Singapore) and Seelan Palay (artist, founder Coda Culture), moderated by Sophie Goltz (Deputy Director, Research, NTU CCA Singapore and Assistant Professor, School of Art, Design and Media, Nanyang Technological University)

In this conversation, Dia will introduce her artistic intervention Golden Staircase (2017). Taking over a block of steps from a HDB staircase in Jalan Rajah, the work stirred controversy and public debate on how contemporary art could relate to the built environment we live in. The debate was exceptionally amplified on social media. Palay will discuss his artistic practice and his public performance 32 Years: The Interrogation of a Mirror (2018), a conceptual work in progress. In 2018, the public (performative) action led to his arrest and resulted in an island-wide debate around what can be considered a work of art in public. The discussion with both artists will look into recent urban developments and artistic approaches in the public sphere.
