Singapore Art Week
Look out as Singapore’s signature visual arts season – Singapore Art Week (SAW) – returns in its milestone tenth edition. Presenting over 130 programmes across physical and digital realms, “Art Takes Over” the island into retail, industrial spaces, hawker centres and beyond.
Art aficionados, collectors and families of all ages can expect 35 new Singapore-based projects and offerings from close to 600 artists, creatives, curators and partners from countries such as Singapore, Bangkok, China, Australia, Turkey, the United Kingdom and United States of America.
This year’s programmes celebrate the artistic legacies and diversity in Singapore’s vibrant arts scene. The public can marvel at the rich artistic practices of Singapore’s modern and contemporary artists, revel in the wonderful possibilities of art x technology, be empowered by art-inspired connections and dialogue, or expand their horizons with new perspectives presented from the inside out.
Tay Tong, Director of Sector Development (Visual Arts) at NAC, remarked, “The world is opening up, literally, and figuratively in spirit, and we see SAW as a catalyst for the discovery of art from Singapore and the region. It is an annual platform that presents the diversity in the Singapore visual arts ecosystem. SAW 2022 is energised by the exciting propositions that our artists, curators, and presenters have created. Many step outside of their comfort zone to create work that responds to the times, while remaining connected to our audiences here and abroad. The works are delivered through enhanced arts experiences or through digital technology.”
Whether it’s art across three time zones, mukbang at Singapore’s iconic Lau Pa Sat, or an industrial artventure at Tanjong Pagar Distripark, there is something for everyone.
