Singapore Art Show 2005
Organised by the National
Arts Council, Singapore Art Show (SAS) aims to be a national platform for both
established as well as up-and-coming local visual artists to showcase their
latest artworks. It also serves as an important avenue for public appreciation
of the diverse visual arts practices found in Singapore.
The programme structure of SAS is currently being developed. To be launched in 2005, it will allow for the showcase of artworks from various genres and medium by Singapore artists, as well as seek to engage the visual arts community in Singapore through outreach components, public art, platforms for the discovery of new talents, and prestigious awards.
SAS is part of an integrated framework of two exciting biennial visual arts platforms developed to provide expanded and diverse visual arts showcases in Singapore. The other is the Singapore Biennale which will focus on the development and presentation of South-east Asian and Asian contemporary art in the international scene. These two biennials aim to further nurture our visual arts talents, capabilities and audiences nationally, regionally, and internationally.
