Grey Projects present two exhibitions celebrating public spaces and migrant workers in conjunction with Archifest 2017

Described as an artist whose work explores the issues surrounding "queer melancholia", Moses Tan will bring an installation inspired by public places to Grey Projects, the indie art space in Tiong Bahru. Exploring the claims on the built environment and public spaces through the eyes of a group that's often discriminated, 'Making Shadows' uses configurations of bookstores, parks as well as toilet facilities through drawings and videos. Cuts outs and partitions form a maze-like space, with works placed among the space to guide the viewer through an experience that facilitates cruising.

Another exhibition to look out for features 40 photographs that document the lives of migrant workers, taken by the domestic and construction workers themselves. Originally conceived as a book by William Phuan, co-founder of The Select Centre, the photographs are selected and curated by Jason Wee, William Phuan, and Alex Au. There will also be a panel discussion as well as poetry and music performances by the subjects.

From 7 to 11 October at Grey Projects.
