Art After Dark returns to Gillman Barracks for the precinct’s third anniversary celebrations!
Please note that in view of the haze, the Art After Dark event tonight will still go on but the outdoor programmes will be moved indoors to minimise outdoor activity.
For this anniversary edition of Art After Dark, expect blockbuster exhibitions by the galleries, including several featuring local artists. There will also be talks by curators and artists at Sundaram Tagore Gallery and Michael Janssen Gallery. Other highlights for the night include the unveiling of a new public sculpture under Platform Projects’ Lohia Mentorship Series, produced by local artist Sookoon Ang under the mentorship of international artist Jitish Kallat. NTU CCA Singapore’s Residencies: OPEN series invites visitors to explore the studios and experience the work of its Artists-in-Residence. This edition presents artists Amanda Heng, Li Ran, Yan Jun and anGie Seah who focus on performance in their artistic practice.
