HeART OF COMMUNITY: A Master Class with Love Difference
Brack is a platform for socially-engaged art and artists, with an emphasis on community engagement. For the first series of 2015, Brack has invited Love Difference, an artist collective from Italy, to conduct a Master Class on harmonising the creative process in relation with a community. Love Difference has focused on community-based public art since 2002.
The workshop explores the responsibilities of the gesture, the narrative dimension of the creation, and the sustainability of the production process to enhance the creative process.

The journey of being an artist, or nurturing any art form, parallels the process of a plant anchoring strongly in soil, growing tall and weathering elements overtime.
DECK, launched with the dream of pushing local and regional photography to new heights, requires that conditions to germinate and blossom. The team behind this brainchild understands that every stroke of genius trickles down from years of uncompromising hard work and a firm foundation, be it in technical mastery, artistic experience or aptitude – qualities mirrored in the artworks featured in this showcase. Most importantly, like art making, this is an endeavour that could not just be achieved in isolation. We need you, the catalyst of change, to weight in.
These works are generous donations by some of the most promising and well known photographers of our time, and all proceeds would go into laying the infrastructural groundwork for DECK.
Together, let’s break new ground in Singapore’s arts and cultural landscape.
Made of 19 refurbished shipping containers, DECK is a unique space of galleries, artist studio and library. Moving into 2015, we will launch a brand new series of programmes and a community art library. Ongoing is our fundraising exhibition GROUNDWORK which 20 artists donated their works to support DECK’s core programmes for artists in 2015.

Online and Local, Worldwide: Discussion art, digital platforms, and Southeast Asia
An online presentation & discussion, featuring:
- Roger Nelson: curator, Online and Local, Worldwide: Five Websites From and For Southeast Asia
- Sidd Perez: PlantingRice.com
- Pen Sereypangna: Phnom Penh Visions
- Pip Kelly: curator, Jorng Jam
- Melanie Chua, Alecia Neo & Nasri Shah: Brack
The discussion explores key questions in Roger Nelson’s Online and Local, Worldwide project in relation to the websites featured in the latter, as well as the projects presented by the discussants.
How problematic is it to frame contemporary art and related practices from Southeast Asia in regional terms, insofar as these projects are concerned? How do digital platforms enforce or diminish the varying boundaries of contexts – the local, the regional, and the global – and the distance(s) between them?

The Air-Conditioned Recession: A Singapore Survey
With Singapore facing its deepest economic recession, there is a growing sense amongst the people of this island republic that their government cannot always be expected to provide all the answers to their shared problems, that oftentimes, the answers lie within themselves. This also means a loosening of state strictures that have hitherto dominated social political debate within the republic. This loosening has also been hastened by the space that the internet allows.
The Air Conditioned Recession – A Singapore Survey, will attempt to address some of the underlying issues that remain under the surface by mining existing works by Singaporean artists created in the past few years.
Participating Artists: Alecia Neo, Amanda Heng, Alan Oei, Cheo Chai-hiang, Ghazi Alqudcy & Ezzam Rahman, Jason Lim, Jason Wee, Jimmy Ong, Jing Quek, Junaidi Waee, Lynn Lu, Michael Lee, Safaruddin Abdul Hamid, Tang Da Wu and Tan Seow Wei.
