1/4 We are not going back, we are coming around
What As part of the new initiative Proposals for Novel Ways of Being helmed by the National Gallery and Singapore Art Museum to rally the local arts community, The Substation is one of 12 local arts spaces to host a slew of programmes by practitioners from various fields. The series titled We are not going back, we are coming around, is anchored in the exploration of how the arts should re-evaluate their role in a world that is broken and will see eight participating artists contribute to the conversation through their works, including a pop-up by Straits Records, one of Singapore's few remaining record shops, to kick off its programme and boost local independent businesses in the process.

2/4 Stranger Still
What Comprised of four programmes and curated by local artist Jason Wee, the first installation of Stranger Still is an exhibition titled Strange Bodies by Malaysian film score composer Jerome Kugan and homegrown artist Yang Zhongda that explores the polyvalent possibilities between human and non-human divisions, presented in several chimeric forms. The chimeras, which are largely inspired by mythology, history, and contemporary medical case studies, reassesses our expectations of what we perceive as natural and disordered, as well as present a picture of how bodies will inevitably evolve and survive to adapt to a post-crisis future.
