Project Description


projectglocal2012 is a cross cultural multi-locale art project that ushers conversation between "city" artists from Bangkok, HongKong, Manila and Singapore through a series of small talks and exhibits in the four cities. This project's main objective is to explore intersections of city living as habits, traditions and imagined realities at the time when boundaries of local and global becomes blurred by econo-airfares, the internet and other vehicles of physical, cerebral and social diaspora.
