Local non-profit arts space Grey Project collaborates with Seoul's Space One to interrogate gender hierarchy
Breaking the glass ceiling
With gender hierarchy at the forefront of public consciousness with rise of women’s rights campaigns like #MeToo and #TimesUp in 2018, Grey Project brings together artists, researchers, curators, writers and DJs from Korea, Singapore and Germany to take the conversation further
TALK & PANEL
It might be the fastest growing region in the world but Asia isn’t exactly meeting its huge economic potential, and some of that might have to do with the huge numbers of women who are still left out of the labour force. Theorists Amy Ireland and Patricia Reed come together for "Gender Hierarchy: On Critiquing Verticality and Looking Towards Diversified Geometry", a talk that addresses the limitations that women face within the workplace as the gender gap continues to increase. Moderated by Seoul-based artist InYoung Yeo, a panel discussion with academics Tania Roy and Clare Veal will follow.
As allegations of sexual harassment seem to be sprout up everywhere from the paddy field to the CEO's corner office, definitions of gender discrimination have been called into question. Through video, photography, mixed-media and sculpture, the artists — InYoung Yeo, TcoET (Dew Kim & Luciano Zubillaga), Stephanie Jane Burt and Priyageetha Dia — offer a personal take on what gender hierarchy means to them, exploring the subtle influence of internalized misogyny to the overt hypersexualization in advertising.

Australia-based German artist MAN.De (Mandy Schöne-Salter) will create a mural outside of Grey Project in Tiong Bahru. Schöne-Salter's mural considers issues of trust between women and the misogynistic societies they live in. The mural will remain on view for the duration of the exhibition.
