We must forget in order to remain present, forget in order not to die, forget in order to remain faithful.”- Marc Augé, Oblivion

For the House; Against the House returns for the Singapore Art Week 2023 with two new motions up for debate. Through a unique debate format where art illustrates the arguments, OH! works with collectors to present selected works from their collections alongside new commissions from Singapore and international artists.

Set to _____ is Dead, the third iteration of the show presents a double bill exploring the mortality of two cherished concepts The Museum is Dead and Desire is Dead conceptualised by Singaporean curators John Tung and Adele Tan respectively. Taking place within Tanglin Shopping Centre –  a mall scheduled for enbloc – the exhibitions’ manifestation at the site goes beyond their topics of inquiry, revealing the entanglements between Singapore’s ubiquitous shopping malls and our cultural identity. 

In an epoch defined by excesses of time, space, and individuality, we are also barraged with obsolescence and erasure: it must be gone for us to remember; must it die so as to live forever?


Opening Hours
Tue - Sun : 11 AM - 7 PM | Fri : 11 AM - 9 PM | Closed on Mondays
Free Admission
