Cities Change.Print Exhibition & Fundraiser

19–22 January, 12pm–8pm daily
Public Opening: Saturday, 19 January, 4pm–6pm

The Substation’s 2018/19 programme Cities change. People die. Everything you know goes away. was the second chapter of a three-year curatorial direction examining the city, during which The Substation looked at local heritage and how its discourses shape the city through conservation and nostalgia. One of our initiatives was HandJob; part celebration of all things handmade and analogue, part rejection of trendy and over-produced nostalgic branding. The project exposed the grittiness, spontaneity, and sheer splendour of this infinitely adaptable medium.

Eight Associate Printmakers were invited to respond to facets of heritage through the means of printmaking, they included:

  • Mojoko

  • Tell Your Children

  • Sam Lo (SKL0)

  • Joseph Chiang

  • Muhammad Izdi

  • Aliff Osman

  • Ong Lijie

  • Eitaro Ogawa

The Cities Change.Print Exhibition & Fundraiser presents individual, editioned prints from our eight Associate Printmakers available for purchase.
