The School of Uncommon Knowledge: Painted Shadows, by Ng Yi-sheng

  • National Gallery 1 Saint Andrew's Road Singapore, 178957 Singapore (map)

Join poet/activist Ng Yi-Sheng on a walk through Southeast Asia’s queer art history. Moving between chambers of the National Gallery, he will unlock the spaces and artefacts of the institution to reveal hidden stories of oppression, struggle, liberation, love and loss. 

Before the tour, all the participants are to obtain one General Admissions ticket for themselves (i.e. they will not be visiting Artist and Empire). The guide will be waiting outside the Holding Cells at the Supreme Court Wing, Level 1. He will be dressed in white. Try to arrive at least 15 minutes before the tour begins.

This event is not endorsed by the National Gallery Singapore.

This class is part of The Substation's "A Home for the Arts" programme in November 2016. The School of Uncommon Knowledge is an art/workshop series that seeks to test the utility of art forms and art knowledge to their limits. As payment for participating in these workshops, participants are to provide items for barter with their respective artist-educators. More information about the "A Home for the Arts" programme (including registration links) can be found in the Facebook link provided below.
