OH! JALAN BESAR: REFUGE FOR STRANGERS
Spend your weekend at Jalan Besar; a neighbourhood where colliding communities intersect, and its past overlaps with the present.
For the first time ever, OH! takes the spotlight off cosy houses and happy homes. This time, we turn our focus to the communities and livelihoods within Jalan Besar – 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.
When you take this tour, remember – we enter as strangers. Artists lead the way, their works scattered around the secret spaces and trade shops of Jalan Besar. These are the stories that built Jalan Besar; this refuge for strangers.
