A Project by Space One (Seoul), in collaboration with Grey Projects (Singapore)
In Partnership With the Goethe-Institut Singapore
With Support From The Council and TUFF CLUB
Within the contemporary societies of major Asian cities is a prominent hierarchical structure in gender. With rapid growth, focus on economic stability, the conformity to and normalcy of the gender gap, this hierarchical structure remains an unchallenged status quo and continues to be subconsciously perceived as 'normal'. As a part of an ongoing research project, 'Gender Hierarchy' addresses the lack of awareness and need for broader and more inclusive conversations in how this affects all genders and society as a whole, in all aspects from fundamental ideologies to the everyday mundane in relation to others. Shifting from the vertical center of patriarchy and phallocentric gaze to geometry of complexity and alterity, it brings together artists, researchers, curators, writers and DJs from Korea, Singapore and Germany. Looking at topics of sexuality, Girl culture and feminism with an exhibition by InYoung Yeo, TcoET (Dew Kim & Luciano Zubillaga), Stephanie Jane Burt, Priyageetha Dia; lectures & panel talk by Patricia Reed, Amy Ireland, Tania Roy, Clare Veal, InYoung Yeo; mural painting by MAN.De - Mandy Schöne-Salter and a music event by DJs LINNÉA, RAH and CATS ON CRACK, the project hopes to share ideas on the common threads in reflecting on the contemporary state of gender hierarchy and further discuss future possibilities.

Join us on September 13th at 5PM at LASALLE's McNally campus for a talk by Patricia Reed and Amy Ireland, moderated by InYoung Yeo. The lectures will be followed by a panel discussion with Patricia Reed, Amy Ireland, InYoung Yeo, Tania Roy and Clare Veal.
Examining the segregated gender expectations in major cities in Asia, the talk "Gender Hierarchy: On Critiquing Verticality and Looking Towards Diversified Geometry" addresses the limitations of vertical hierarchy in contemporary social structure as it continues to increase the gender gap. The talk further discusses the future potential for complex geometric appropriation that invites repressive issues of all gender stereotypes. Amy Ireland's "Feminism between Fish and Future AI: A Geotraumatic Critique of Posture" attempts to shift the focus of 'basic and biaxial political geometry' of horizontal and vertical, and Patricia Reed's "Feminism’s Horizonless Future" argues for the construction of new geometric orientations within its delineation.
Registration is required. Registration and more info here: http://ghtalk.peatix.com
A group exhibition by InYoung Yeo, TcoET (Dew Kim & Luciano Zubillaga), Stephanie Jane Burt and Priyageetha Dia
As conversations surrounding gender gain in complexity, what constitutes gender injustices consequently continues to evolve. This evolution catalyzes the need for society to continually question and challenge the gender norms in which its inhabitants are confined.
Through performance/video, photography, mixed-media and sculptural installation works, the artists offer interpretations of the many channels through which gender roles pervasively dictate people’s behaviours in modern society. Each artist addresses what gender hierarchy means to them, from the subtle influence of internalized misogyny to the overt hyper-sexualization of advertising and culture.
Break out a sweat with us at TUFF CLUB on Sep 14th for a night of dancing with our DJs LINNÉA (Trade/No Shade), RAH (Darker Than Wax/Revision Music) and CATS ON CRACK (The Council).

⚡ LINNÉA (Trade/No Shade/Berlin)⚡
Born in Sweden and currently based in Berlin, Linnéa Palmestål is a resident DJ at the popular TRADE party at OHM, as well as the main teacher and co-founder of the No Shade mentoring and training program for female, trans and non-binary beginner DJs.
LINNÉA’s energizing, au-courant sets span glossy trap, futuristic grime, R&B, neo-reggaeton and other hybrid styles that challenge the Euro step/touch hegemony. LINNÉA’s first EP is currently in the works and a release is to be expected in 2018.
⚡ RAH (Darker Than Wax/Revision Music)⚡
RAH’s foray into electronic music began with her fascination of rolling amen breaks and drum patterns of drum and bass. This formative pursuit naturally progressed to the turntables, where she discovered her latent ability as a selector.
Her sound has since developed into a distinct, eclectic style that has reached a discerning international audience across Asia, Europe and America.
RAH is part of two independent movements in Singapore, record label Darker Than Wax, and events & music promotion collective, Revision Music - where she explores worldly alternative sounds the likes of Jazz, Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul, Dub, and Bass music, which marks her distinct style of always keeping sounds fresh, feet moving and souls content.
⚡ CATS ON CRACK (The Council)⚡
A successful entrepreneur in her 20s, Eileen co-founded The Council, a music agency dedicated to promoting dance music from Singapore, Asia and beyond. She is also the driving force behind two of Singapore’s most exciting alternative music venues and nightclubs, Headquarters and TUFF CLUB. Passionate about creating experiences and memories to last a lifetime, she has devoted her time to creating well-loved pop-up events and music gigs in unique locations around Singapore, taking punters from open-air spaces to carparks and warehouse spaces. A DJ herself and a fervent champion of the dance music scene, she has created a platform to showcase the city’s best DJs and beat-makers. With her sights set beyond the Red Dot, it won’t be long before more of Singapore’s talent will go on to conquer stages overseas with her continued support.
In response to the theme of Gender Hierarchy, we've invited Australia-based German artist MAN.De - Mandy Schöne-Salter to create a mural artwork outside of our gallery, on our building in Tiong Bahru. Mandy's mural considers issues of trust between women and the misogynistic societies they live in.
Mandy Schöne-Salter is an interdisciplinary artist working in urban art, photography and community art. She studied photography at the Nepean Arts and Design Centre and participated in an intensive Public Art workshop led by New York Artist Kendal Henry. Since 2013 Mandy has worked on multiple street art projects in Australia and Germany under the synonym MAN.De.
The mural will remain on view for the duration of the exhibition.
