The City Being exhibition illuminates the visible and hidden infrastructures of the urban environment, encompassing both subterranean and above-ground elements, man-made or natural. By curating a collection of artworks, designs, and architectural pieces, juxtaposed with historical maps and drawings of infrastructural systems, the exhibition explores various facets of the city's dynamic nature. This collective display prompts contemplation on the essence and character of the City Being.
