A Guide to Shadow Libraries with Heman Chong and Brian Kuan Wood

Join us for a conversation between artist Heman Chong (Singapore) and exhibition curator Brian Kuan Wood (co-founder and editor of e-flux journal, New York) on the occasion of Chong’s second solo exhibition at STPI, Meditations on Shadow Libraries.Over the course of the past two decades, Chong has been preoccupied with the public library as ideology, material and site, and Meditations on Shadow Libraries explores the unexpected shapes and forms of today’s personal, individual or informal libraries given the way we rapidly share information and knowledge. How can we begin to think beyond a mere capitalisation of data? Should everyone be allowed to share information freely and without consequence? What would that system look and feel like? What are the limits of control when the ease of sharing knowledge becomes increasingly commonplace?Reserve your seat for this Opening Day exclusive. Please arrive at STPI Gallery 15 minutes before the event. The dialogue will commence promptly at 3.00 PM.
