OH! Jalan Besar: Refuge For Strangers

ABOUT THIS EVENT

OH! presents its flagship artwalk, this time in neighbourhood of Jalan Besar.

OH! JALAN BESAR: REFUGE FOR STRANGERS

In a city of sharp lines, yellow boxes and clear labels, Jalan Besar is complex, messy and raw. Here lies a place you can make your own, but only if you belong here and perhaps nowhere else; the transient workers, the fringes of society, the sunset trades and disappearing clans – these communities live in the margins of Singapore. But not in Jalan Besar. Jalan Besar belongs to them.

So when you embark on this tour, you will enter as a stranger. Artists will lead the way, their works scattered around the secret spaces and trade shops of Jalan Besar. Experience the strangeness of a neighbourhood where colliding communities intersect, and its past overlaps with the present. Be part of OH! Jalan Besar; learn the stories that built this refuge for strangers.
