SINGAPORE - The Singapore Art Week will return in its third week from Jan 17 to 25, 2015.
It will overshadow last year's edition with over a 100 events planned out ranging from art fairs to public art walks.
The events will take place mostly in arts and cultural hubs in Singapore such as Bras Basah, Dempsey Hill and Kampong Glam.
The Singapore Art Week is an initiative by the National Arts Council, the Singapore Tourism Board and Singapore Economic Development board.
Said Mr Paul Tan, deputy chief executive officer of the National Arts Council: "Singapore Art Week kicks off the nation's cultural calendar and we are pulling out the stops to make sure across the island, the visual arts come alive - from the Bras Basah Bugis district to Gillman Barracks to many corners of the island where you don't usually find art!
"Whether Singaporean or international guest, first-timer or serious art collector, Singapore Art Week has something for everyone."
With a significant number of top-notch international galleries participating in Art Stage, including 93 galleries coming from across Asia, Singapore Art Week is also set to be a match-making platform for collectors, artists, gallerists, curators and art enthusiasts in Asia.
For collectors and art connoisseurs, Art Stage Singapore, which is back for its fifth edition with more than 130 galleries from 29 countries, remains a must-see. The Prudential Singapore Eye Exhibition is a first for Singapore, which will include the launch of a book showcasing 62 Singapore contemporary artists.
There are also events for the whole family such as the Sculpture Carnival at Fort Canning Park; Leonardo Da Vinci's Earlier Mona Lisa at the Arts House; outdoor Taichi Sculpture Exhibition by Ju Ming, well-known Taiwanese sculptor; open house at Tanjong Goodman and the many art trails, by MRT or bus, or an art walk through Little India.
