8Q-Rate: School is the inaugural exhibition at SAM at 8Q, the Singapore Art Museum's new contemporary art space which opened in August 2008. Put together by eight curators who worked closely with eight local artists, the exhibition catalogue features site-specific installation works by Ahmad Abu Bakar, Chong Li-Chuan, Jahan Loh, Donna Ong, :phunk Studio, Grace Tan, Tan Kai Syng and Jason Wee. These works make reference to the personal and generic experiences of school and school days, and expand on the themes of education, cultivation of knowledge, art as a discipline or field and changes in movements and schools over time. This catalogue features curatorial essays, artist statements and full colour photographs of the installation art pieces.
