“For the month of September, Post-Museum presents Survey: Space, Sharing, Haunting, a series of programmes examining and reflecting upon the state of arts and culture in Singapore.
One of the significant changes is altering the way audiences enter into the historic ‘Home of the Arts’ for the month. The main door will be closed, and audiences will enter and exit from another opening in the building.” – Post-Museum News
Woon Tien Wei, founder of Post-Museum, comments, “today, we are in a crisis situation where the very ideals on which The Sub was founded are being interrogated and even subjugated in the ‘Renaissancing’ of Singapore’s cultural landscape. SURVEY asks: How have the values of Singapore’s arts community changed in the last 20 years? What are the values of the arts community today?” – Singapore Art & Gallery Guide
The Survey exhibition forms the backbone of the programme. Almost all of the activities are free entry, with prior registration required.
