Singapore Art Week

Since 2013, Singapore Art Week (SAW) is the pinnacle celebration of Singapore’s vibrant visual arts landscape hosted annually. It is Singapore’s signature visual arts season that celebrates the coming together of arts and cultural institutions, private galleries, non-profit arts organisations, independent artists and curators, to present arts events across both physical and digital spaces. 

As a spotlight, gathering and launchpad, SAW offers a platform for the creation of a diverse range of new works, transnational collaborations, and knowledge-sharing from both local and regional arts communities.

In its 11th edition, the ten-day celebration of the visual arts showcased two dynamic art fairs, S.E.A. Focus and the inaugural ART SG; two highlight commissions are the homecoming presentation of Pulp III: A Short Biography of the Banished Book at the recent 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia and the Singapore Biennale; as well as a vibrant Light to Night in the Civic District.
