S.E.A. Focus returns for its second edition during Singapore Art Week in January 2020 with 20 leading galleries from Singapore and around the world. Held at Singapore’s visual arts precinct Gilman Barracks, S.E.A. Focus 2020 builds on its misson to showcase contemporary art from Southeast Asia, providing a platform to foster greater appreciation and engagement with the art and artists from the region for collectors and art enthusiasts.
Of the 20 participating galleries, half have gallery spaces in Singapore, with others drawn from galleries based in cities across the wider Southeast Asia region, including Jakarta, Makati City, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Hanoi, as well as Beijing, Berlin, Brisbane, New York and Seoul. All will exhibit work by artists based in, or connected to, Southeast Asia.
Underscoring its commitment to fostering greater appreciation for art from Southeast Asia, S.E.A. Focus will present a series of creative talks, under the title #SEAspotlight, specially curated by S.E.A. Focus’ Talks and VIP Programmes Manager Audrey Yeo.
