    Singapore’s cityscape is in a perpetual state of re-construction: Buildings are systematically torn down to make way for newer ones. How do we deal with constant change in this City’s state of impermanence? Do we resist, address or accept the customs of our evolving culture? 

    C L O S U R E is a collection of multi-views that negotiate the situation. 8 different creatives respond to the notion of progress/loss through change in their own ways in an old flat at its final stage of en-bloc.

    Free of Charge Artshow (FOCA) contributes to S'pore's cultural narrative by addressing shifting concerns by way of dialogue, documentation & discourse. FOCA is interested in organizing inter-disciplinary and inter-generational art shows to express what defines our culture today.

    We are a grassroots initiative with the intention of creating a community built upon society's generosity for Arts and Heritage, with the interests of engaging alternative spaces, critical discourse and cross-collaboration.

It is so heartwarming to have witnessed the spirited dialogue & consensus across the different institutions. These creatives all discovered abit from each other, the special roles and spectrum of art in this country.
