“Is that a temple?” (Evil Empire, 17 Dec 2010) "The Society of Independent Artists was an association of American artists founded in 1916 and based in New York. Based on the French Société des Artistes Indépendants, the goal of the society was to hold annual exhibitions by avant-garde artists. Exhibitions were to be open to anyone who wanted to display their work, and shows were without juries or prizes… The first show in 1916 displayed 2,000 pieces from artists around the world."
– Wikipedia

As part of an exhibition to be held at the end of the year, part of “Is that a temple?” is a re-enactment of the Society of Independent Artists exhibitions of the 1910s, as a platform for artists of any style, any caliber, to present their work in an exhibition format for no monetary cost. As mode of validation, this portion of the exhibition revolves around artists contributing their own work in the construction of a mode of presentation that can be replicated and redesigned for years to come in Singapore."
