2. Alter Ego: Roberta Breitmore Series Opening Reception

Photo credit: Peatix

ShanghART Singapore is pleased to announce Lynn Hershman’s first solo exhibition in Asia – Alter Ego (Roberta Breitmore Series), showcasing her best-known series created from1973 – 1978, giving the audience here an opportunity to better understand the artist who has not just been advancing with the times, but often even ahead of her time.

In the past 50 years, American artist Lynn Hershman has been continuously creating a pioneering body of works in drawing, videos, collage, performance, installation, site-specific art and recently digital technologies, interactive web-based works, Bio Art, etc. She has largely been ignored and disregarded for decades but her work in all her different media has proven remarkably ahead of its time. It is only in recent times when her works started to gradually attract wide attention in the United States and Europe.

This exhibition will showcase Lynn Hershman ’s representative and critical series of works of Roberta Breitmore in 1973-1978. The works examine the relationship between individuals’ “real” and “virtual” identities – a topic that is still very much relevant in this day and age of consumerism; when issues such as Facebook’s data breach and mass surveillance in everyday life forces us to reevaluate the balance between privacy, security, and convenience; and an environment where technology is increasingly intertwined with our lives.

About Lynn HershmanAmerican artist Lynn Hershman (b.1941) has been doing artistic practice for more than 50 years and internationally acclaimed for her art and films. As one of the earliest new media vanguard artists, Lynn Hershman is widely recognised for her innovative work investigating issues that are now recognised as key to the workings of society: the relationship between humans and technology, identity, surveillance, and the use of media as a tool of empowerment against censorship and political repression.

6. Book Discussion: Voluntary Simplicity by Duane Elgin

Photo credit: Peatix

The Book

First published in 1981, Voluntary Simplicity was quickly recognized as a powerful and visionary work in the emerging dialogue over sustainable living. 20 years later, with many of the planet’s environmental stresses now more urgent than ever, Duane Elgin has once again revised and updated his revolutionary book.
Voluntary Simplicity is not a book about living in poverty; it is a book about living with balance. Elgin illuminates the changes that an increasing number of Americans are making in their everyday lives-adjustments in day-to-day living that are an active, positive response to the complex dilemmas of our time.
By embracing the tenets of voluntary simplicity-frugal consumption, ecological awareness, and personal growth-people can change their lives and, in the process, save our planet.

The Discussion

This interactive discussion seeks to raise questions about what truly matters in life.
  • What is the voluntary simplicity approach to life?
  • Are there really viable alternative lifestyles where people flourish and thrive, leading meaningful and significant lives with less money?
  • Are there non-materialistic sources of satisfaction and meaning? If so, how can we cultivate them?
  • What part do values and ideals play in realising the “Good (meaningful) Life”? Is contenment with what we have (with much or little material goods) true success?
Come share your views and hear those of others!
To keep this a cosy session, we are opening this to the first 20 attendees. Please register early to avoid disappointment!

Date: Saturday, 2nd June 2018
Time: 2pm to 5pm
Venue: National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) Giving Place
