About Singapore Art Week
Singapore Art Week is an annual celebration of visual arts which takes place in the month of January to kick start the new year. Jointly organised by the National Arts Council, Singapore Tourism Board, and the Singapore Economic Development Board, Singapore Art Week reinforces Singapore's position as Asia's leading arts destination. The seventh edition in 2019 will be held from 19 to 27 January. The nine-day celebration of the visual arts will take place in venues across Singapore - from galleries and museums, to art precincts and independent art spaces.
Reaching out to both Singapore residents and international visitors to promote art appreciation, Singapore Art Week offers a myriad of quality art experiences which span the visual arts, from traditional to modern to contemporary practices. Audiences can look forward to art fairs, gallery openings, exhibitions, lifestyle events, public art walks, and enriching discussions on art and culture. Singapore Art Week also aims to galvanise the arts sector to launch innovative art and lifestyle concepts and events in conjunction with art events during this period.
