Singapore: through March 21, 2010: Daze and local writers

New York and Singapore
Daze (NYC) and local writers

Is This Home, Truly? In conjunction with the exhibition of celebrated New York graffiti artist, Daze, Fortune Cookie Projects is delighted to announce the opening on 4 March of Is This Home, Truly? Curated by Zaki Razak, the exhibition presents the work of six urban artists from Singapore: Antz, Scopeone, Slacsatu, The Killer Gerbil, TR853-1 and Zero.

In the words of Zaki 'The Pioneers, Markers and Avant-Gardes of Singapore's 'Graffiti Art' are coming home to showcase artworks symbolizing respective peaks of their practice. The showcase not only chronicles representational pieces from the scene in Singapore from the early 90s till today, it also inaugurates their congregation in a 'confined' space - an environment that seems alienating yet longing.'
