For the House; Against the House

For the House; Against the House looks at social issues in Singapore through a unique debate format where art establishes the arguments. In conjunction with the private art collections of Jo and the DUO Collection, curators John Tung and Syed Muhd Hafiz set propositions eliciting contemporary responses through new artwork commissions. Get an exclusive look at artworks by Goh Beng Kwan, Tang Da Wu, Teo Eng Seng and newly commissioned works by Nino Sarabutra and Shen Jiaqi.

Form your own opinions and state your stance – will you argue for or against the house?

Choose between two physical experiences: Passion Made Impossible: Should we have our own ambitions in Singapore? and Judging Labels: Are they useful?. In both experiences, you will be guided through select artworks from the private collections and new commissions, before the experience culminates in a live debate.

In addition, a free digital experience will also launch on 22 January 2021. Consisting two interactive text-based games inspired by the propositions, players will be faced with a series of choices that determines their ultimate fate!

Appetite is proud to present a group show exploring colour and it's historical, experiential, and anthropological lineage. From the geographies and routes of the spice trade, to the pigments and chemicals inherent to a land, the expressions of culture reveal themselves through the colours— hue, tint, tone and shade— that we find in food, textile, architecture, art, and everyday objects.
