The Lecher of Art: Lecture 3
Re-inventing Exams: Sit, listen and do
By Siti Salihah Omar
Thursday 9 June 2011, 8-9:30pm
The Substation Theatre
An exam setting is a familiar sight and experience for all Singaporeans who have completed their National Examinations; ‘no conversations allowed, just raise your hand and we will come to you’. This lecture attempts to re-examine authoritative settings and to exercise the liberty of students.

6 Artists…6 Acts…6 Ways of Lecture…
From April to October 2011, The Substation is hosting a series of six performative presentations under the banner, The Lecher of Art. These seemingly fictional and alternative methodologies of speech delivery contradict the authoritative, anticipated and doctrinal manner in which lectures are commonly presented. The series uncovers new possibilities for how lectures can be conducted and creates a new dialect with the audience, formalising a controversy between the lecture and the lecturer as The Lecher of Art.
