This special event will reflect on art as it engages with society on two small islands: Singapore and Shōdo. What can art do for communities and the social realities of each island? This special event will reflect on the relationship of art activities in the wider social landscape. Current issues will be considered through artistic and scholarly perspectives while searching for alternative visions for today. Together with the opinions of local residents and visitors, creative visions will resound from Sunset House: The House as Language of Being.
