Reading Groups for Siah Armajani: Spaces for the Public. Spaces for Democracy.
3 August – 29 October 2019
The Exhibition Hall, Block 43 Malan Road

NTU Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) is privileged to present the first institutional solo exhibition of Iranian-American artist Siah Armajani (b.1939) in Asia. Taking centre stage in the exhibition, the large-scale installation Sacco & Vanzetti Reading Room #3 (1988) in the exhibition, comprising several elements, such as two wooden cabins, tables, chairs, benches, and racks filled with books and pencils, references two Italian-born American anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, whose contested verdict of armed robbery and murder steered global protests.

NTU CCA Singapore has selected books by and about the philosophers, poets, and political activists that Siah Armajani has dedicated works to, as part of the installation, which is designed for use by the visiting public as a functional and inviting space. Throughout the exhibition period, the installation will host reading groups or other events that respond to the displayed books.

Registration for Reading Groups are now open. Feel free to submit multiple registrations once you have confirmed your schedule.
