DiverseCity is Back
DiverseCity 2012, SIF’s annual arts showcase, promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Art-lovers, get ready. DiverseCity 2012, the SIF’s annual arts showcase, is around the corner, bigger and better than ever.
Featuring over 92 Singaporean artists and the 108 works they’ve presented over the past year in 91 cities, this year’s showcase will be a true celebration of not only the repertoire and global reach of Singapore art and culture, but cross-cultural exchange and collaboration at its very best.
A culmination of SIF’s work this year in bridging communities through art via the Singapore Internationale grant, DiverseCity 2012 will feature familiar faces such as Ming Wong, Ho Tsu Yuen, Vertical Submarine, Robert Zhao, and Zakaria Zainal, and plenty of new and emerging artists too.Spanning four genres of multi-media art, the upcoming showcase promises a rich multi-sensory experience.
The showcase will also highlight collaborative works, from the SIF-British Council Artist-in-Residence exchange programme – where Singaporean artists collaborate with their British peers – to Project Glocal, which presents multilateral collaborations for bridging communities. SIF alumni and Project Glocal curator Dayang Yraola (Philippines), together with Vichaya Mukdamanee (Thailand), will work with 29 other artists from Bangkok, Hong Kong, Manila and Singapore on a cross-cultural exploration of the four cities. DiverseCity will host the Singapore leg of Project Glocal.
A third feature of DiverseCity is Arts Connection, where art brings people together and enables collaborations for a better world. An example of this is Little by Little, a collaboration between SIF and the Little Arts Academy to involve the international community in art and cultural exchanges to enrich the lives of youths. DiverseCity will also feature art therapy projects in India and The Everyday Revolution, a social enterprise founded by SIF’s Young Social Entrepreneurs 2012 programme alumna Sophia Tan.
Come join us at 8Q at Singapore Art Museum from 16 November to 2 December 2012!Back
