The past decade and a half have witnessed an explosion in Singapore’s visual art infrastructure, with the inauguration of the Singapore Biennale, numerous art fairs, the Gillman Barracks precinct and the National Gallery Singapore. Singapore today finds itself firmly embedded in regional and global circuits of production, display and discourse. Amidst this, challenges have also risen, including perceptions of slowing growth and comparisons to other dynamic cities and economies in Asia. With these in mind, panellists will discuss and ponder the future of Singapore’s art scene.
