Bus stops along route 175
24 hrs
Free Admission


Curated by Amelia Abdullahsani and Merryn Trevethan, Bus.Stop.Art. is an innovative public art exhibition constituting art installations and interventions by Singapore-based artists at bus stops along the east-west route of bus 175. This exciting island-wide project takes art out of museums and galleries into the public realm where Singaporeans live, work, and commute, bringing a much-needed sense of joy and wonder to the everyday.

Ten Singapore-based artists respond to the theme #ArtMovesUs, and requisition advertising panels of bus stops for their artworks. From the heartlands to the city centre, the installations spill over into the surrounding community, and the artists activate them in unique ways.

Bus.Stop.Art. includes a number of public programmes that invite the community to get involved; curator tours on the bus, self-guided tours, meet the artists sessions, interactive artworks, as well as downloadable and online activities.
