S.E.A. Focus 2022

S.E.A. Focus is the leading showcase of Southeast Asian contemporary art and artists from the region. A meeting point for artistic vision and vigour, S.E.A. Focus provides a platform to propel diverse cultural exchanges which celebrate, promote and provoke dialogue about Southeast Asian art.

Built around the theme chance…constellations — an exploration of the shared histories, geographies and converging cultures that connect the artistic community in this region — the anchor event of Singapore Art Week 2022 is located at Tanjong Pagar Distripark. Here, 24 galleries will showcase over 170 artworks in a carefully curated exhibition. Alongside this is a stimulating programme of engaging and insightful talks by industry leaders offering thoughtful perspectives and vision into the future of Southeast Asian contemporary art.
 
S.E.A. Focus is also excited to feature Tezos, an energy-efficient blockchain widely adopted by NFT artists and collectors worldwide. Tezos is the first public blockchain to present a specially curated Asian-centric NFT showcase titled ‘NFTs: The New North Star’ within S.E.A. Focus as part of Singapore Art Week.


S.E.A. Focus is an initiative led by STPI – Creative Workshop & Gallery, supported by the National Arts Council, Singapore.
