Trully there is virtue in cultivating the arts. For its sake, appreciating it in its purest form plays a role in assisting individuals and industrialists alike to think and perform out-of-the-box. Thus propelling the art scene forward.
It's an open community where the people can get together, discuss, share and submit their ideas on art. Basically, it's an open community. There's blogs for the blog heads. There's a photogallery for the photographers, we are even linked to Artprints - Poster Gallery for those who are interested and keen to sell their printed designs on poster canvas!

SIXTEEN DEGREES CENTIGRADE – RECONDITIONED
A solo exhibition of curious mixed-media works
by Paul Lincoln
Dates: 9 August to 8 September 2004 (by appointment only)
Venue: p-10 @ 10 Perumal Road Singapore 218777 (near Farrer Park MRT Exit B)
Singaporean academic and social critic Cherian George writes in his book Singapore – The Air-conditioned Nation that Singapore can be thought of as “the Air-conditioned Nation – a society with a unique blend of comfort and central control, where people have mastered their environment, but at the cost of individual autonomy, and at the risk of unsustainability”.
So are other kinds of conditioning necessary in the Air-conditioned Nation? Does living in air-conditioned comfort come with costs? Singaporean artist Paul Lincoln attempts to find answers to these and other questions in Sixteen Degrees Centigrade – Reconditioned.
Taking off from a previous show of the same name held at The Art Gallery, National Institute of Education, this ‘Reconditioned’ version exhibits fresh and unseen upgrades with value-added components.
Viewers of this show will see air-conditioners and their abstractions broken down into their basic attributes of sound, motion and material. They will be able to investigate issues relating to the politics of comfort by experiencing photographic and electronic works as well as sound and temperature installations.
Paul Lincoln has completed a Masters in Fine Art from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and is currently teaching technology and art-related modules at the Visual and Performing Arts group at National Institute of Education. Lincoln’s research interest is in social division and discourses in mass media.
Come explore the social seduction of conditioning!
HELD IN CONJUNCTION
Dialogue session with Cherian George, author of Singapore – The Air-conditioned Nation.
Date: 18 August 2004 (Wed)
Time: 7.30 – 9.30pm
Free session; please RSVP due to limited capacity.
For more information, please call +65 6294 0041 or visit http://www.p-10.org.
