LOCK ROUTE

HAPPENINGText: Editor

Gillman Barracks‘ public art showcase, LOCK ROUTE, opens from 13th January 2017. Curated by Khairuddin Hori, LOCK ROUTE takes inspiration from Gillman Barracks’ address and the 24km long route march common in the training of ‘graduating’ army recruits in Singapore, harking back to Gillman Barracks’ history of being a former military barracks.
