Happy CNY! And lots of rest.

A happy Lunar New Year friends.

Well, i already feel very nua. Fully rested until Sunday (22 Feb). Although I wanted to go to dragon kiln on Saturday... I gave up.

Slept lots and feel more like a new year. Good news is... I did get some sorting of the Dragon pieces before CNY. Determined to do more actually in the new year.

Here is a tip: rest well - if you take a 4 day break and sleep lots. I think anytime of the year - the 5th day will feel like a new year.

I wish you all the best for the year of the goat.

Post-Museum Post (11 Aug 2014): Exhibition + 4 talks this week

Dear friend,
Do join us this week for one or more of the following events in Post-PopUp at CCA! Our address is Blk 38 Malan Road #01-07 S109441 (Gillman Barracks).
More info below.
Thanks and see you again soon!
1. Tonight (11 Aug), 6.30-8pm
Projects: space, place and site – a talk by Antoni Muntadas
Post-PopUp at CCA
By considering art and architecture as public devices, this talk explores new ways of understanding the concept of the ‘spatial cultural identity’ as relevant subject to contemporary critical discourses and practices on urban space. This concept will be used to address and negotiate the complexities of ideas, situations, objects and materials that are inherent to any public space. Questions and concerns of culture and identity within the cartography of a space will be central to our discussion.
2. Till Sun (17 Aug), see opening hours
Happiness, Prosperity and Progress
Post-PopUp at CCA

4. Sat (16 Aug), 3.30-5pm
More than business: Talk 8: Do Din (Two days): An experiment in co-producing urban knowledge
Post-PopUp at CCA
Pay what you want
This talk will draw on the work of Hyderabad Urban Lab, a group of urban researchers, who made the Do Din project possible. The Lab has been attempting to put their academic research skills at the service of urban communities and is an attempt to rebuild a sense of embeddedness and belonging at the same time as reformulating questions of equity for the city's multifarious communities. The talk will be illustrated with examples of the kind of research that takes collective resources of the city as its starting point.
5. Sat (16 Aug), 7-10pm
Living with Myths: Silent Spaces of History
Post-PopUp at CCA
Free (Registration required)
Thum Ping Tjin deconstructs three myths: Singapore’s vulnerability, the government’s role in economic development and the meritocratic system. Ho Chi Tim uncovers traces of social welfare policy in our history. Wong Chee Meng argues that our seemingly ancient cultural heritage is actually shaped by colonial and postcolonial engineering.
