From now till 6 June 2021, the public can encounter 14 larger-than-life art installations along the 36km-long coast-to-coast trail, commissioned by the Public Art Trust (PAT) under the National Arts Council (NAC). Titled Rewritten: The World Ahead of Us, this first-ever public art showcase installed across eight nature parks from Punggol to Jurong sees our artists draw inspiration from Singaporean writers and works in the conceptualisation process.
The multi-sensory project was conceptualised during Singapore’s circuit breaker last year, as a spirited response from the arts community to concerns and experiences caused by COVID-19. Stepping out of their studios and into nature, homegrown artists responded to an open call by NAC with their messages of hope and resilience for the public to share in. Rewritten presents an opportunity for the public to discover works by Singaporean artists and develop a deeper appreciation of visual arts in our daily lives. Progressively installed in phases since Singapore Art Week 2021 in January, the full suite of public artworks is now available for public viewing just as Singapore welcomes a further easing of restrictions this month.
When: 7 Apr - 6 Jun 2021,
