The first floor of Urbanscapes House features skate and visual culture art exhibition Cannot Be Bo(a)rdered showing off works of 25 artists from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.
It was lively and happening on the ground floor while at the same time quiet and reflective at the art rooms. The layout of the house was just perfect for this kind of event personally and I find the whole set up refreshing. Like an oasis in the middle of the city – ironic that it was raining when I arrived.
