A PERMANENT GALLERY, ROTATING CAST OF ARTISTS,
ARCHITECTURAL CASE COMPETITION AND PUNK-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM
AUG – NOV, 2017
THE SUBSTATION, SINGAPORE
The failure of architecture and the invisible hand of the city come under scrutiny with The Substation’s latest exhibition, Discipline the City. Separated into three acts, Discipline the City will run from 23 August to 24 September, 4 October to 22 October and 1 November to 26 November 2017 at The Substation. Throughout these three acts, Discipline the City features a permanent gallery, a rotating cast of artists, an architectural case competition, and a punk-in-residence program, as well as a series of public program and events. Co-curated by Alan Oei, Artistic Director of The Substation, and Joshua Comaroff, a designer and assistant professor at Singapore University of Technology and Design, the exhibition examines the question of control, access, and the politics of space and provokes visitors into questioning their right to the city and their place within it. The exhibition is an expression of The Substation’s artistic theme for 2017, also called Discipline the City.
