The largest precinct-wide interdisciplinary arts festival in the city state will feature multi-sensorial experiences from day to night.
National Gallery Singapore, the crown jewel of the city-state’s arts scene, will be even more exciting from January 19 to 28.
Art buffs will be treated to the two week-long Light to Night Festival, a marquee event in the Singapore Art Week calendar.
The precinct-wide arts festival, spearheaded by the gallery, looks set to paint Singapore’s Civic District in fascinating colors.
Visitors can expect to see iconic cultural institutions and parks, including The Art House, Victoria Theatre, Victoria Concert Hall, Asian Civilisations Museum, and The Esplanade, transformed into creative canvasses for works of art.
The festival, themed “Color Sensations,” will be a kaleidoscope of dazzling public art and activities, such as interactive light projections, illusionary play with mirrors, and even participatory performances.
Here are three you shouldn’t miss out on:
Art Skins on Monuments
Watch as colored light projections by 30 Singapore and Singapore-based artists, illustrators, and multimedia designers cover the Former Supreme Court Building, The Arts House, Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall, and the Asian Civilisations Museum.
House of Mirrors
A multi-sensory trip through a house-sized kaleidoscope that turns your reflection into many things, including a shadow, ghost, stranger, and constant companion.
Flowers and People – Dark
This projected art installation follows the journey of flowers as they bud, grow, blossom, and wither. Walk into a digital field of beautiful blooms as you influence the work by interacting with it.
