ART  | PPC | 珍珠坊: A Public Living Room

Situated in the heart of Chinatown, People's Park Complex has always been bustling with a myriad of activities since the '70s. In line with Singapore Art Week, the exhibition challenges the notions of a 'public living room', where the boundaries between public and private are blurred and how humanity has shaped the spatial landscape of this historic building. Visual artists including Alecia Neo, Bruce Quek and Andreas Siagian & Budi Prakosa will also showcase their artworks.
