More than 80 events are lined up to celebrate the Singapore Art Week which officially starts today, January 16, 2016. Hometown artists will be at the thick of the events, with the likes of Sherman Ong, Robert Zhao Renhui, and Marvin Tang taking center stage during the main events. The works of Zhao will be featured in the prestigious Prudential Eye Awards exhibition, an impressive gallery that will also be unveiled come Saturday.
The Singapore Art Week’s two must-watch shows schedule are “Imaginary Homeland” and “Everest”. “Imaginary Homeland” opens on Jan 13. This exhibit features Boedi Widjaja’s outlook on the politics of Indonesia spanning 30 years. “Everest”, on the other hand, will open on January 20. The show is a collaboration of Sookoon and British designer Sorcha O’Raghallaigh. It will be a showcase of breath-taking sculptures, drawings, and videos.
The others that are worth checking out at the Singapore Art week are the installation entitled “Death By A Thousand Cuts” on January 14; “My Forest Has No Name” on January 16; “Freely” on January 17; and “Arc Of Uncertainties” on January 18.
