Culture City. Culture Scape.
A much-needed resource on the practice of public art commissions and community engagement through the arts in urban Asia.
Distributed for the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art
This book documents a major public art commission in Singapore, featuring works by artists Dan Graham, Zul Mahmod, Tomás Saraceno, and Yinka Shonibare, and it represents a unique collaboration between Nanyang Technology University Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore and Mapletree Investments—a Singaporean state-owned property developer with global operations. Essays and interviews with the artists tell the story of the regional histories, urban politics, and collaboration that went into the successful creation of a public space, and refer to the practice of place-making that integrates landscape architecture, urban planning, and cultural management. Culture City. Culture Scape. is a much-needed resource on the role that art can play in public education and social corporate investment in urban Asia.
