Panel: The Future of Collective Experience

Lim Su Pei & Kirti Bhaskar Upadhyaya, Mouna Andraos & Melissa Mongiat, Moderated by Nadya Wang

The pandemic aftershocks point not only towards an economic recession but also a social one. As public events and gatherings remain restricted, this has fuelled a hunger to restore and rebuild a lost sense of community, both online and in real life. In this era of social distancing, how (well) can the arts adapt to preserve shared spaces for engagement, whilst playing by the rules?

Moderated by Nadya Wang from online publication Art & Market, and featuring speakers from OH! Open House and Montreal-based Daily tous les jour, this panel discusses how art, design and culture can come together to create meaningful public participation and new social experiences in both the short and long term.

Her prior work experience includes managing regional and international arts-business programmes held in Singapore, South Africa and Eastern Europe. Through her work at OH! Open House, she enjoys producing public art shows that are accessible yet thought-provoking. 

Kirti Bhaskar Upadhyaya is an Assistant Curator at OH! Open House, where she investigates the complicated histories and narratives of Singapore. Kirti received her degree in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London.

Mouna is an adjunct professor at Concordia University’s Design and Computation Arts department, and UQAM’s École de Design, having a Master’s degree from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP).
