S.E.A. Focus is a curated art show for international, regional, and local galleries featuring Southeast Asian modern and contemporary art during Singapore Art Week 2019. The art show will take the form of a boutique art fair and host approximately 25 galleries within a special pop-up structure in Gillman Barracks.
There will be an enthusiastic presentation from established Singaporean galleries ranging from Art Commune which specialises in local Modern Masters such as Cheong Soo Pieng to Yavuz Gallery who will exhibit Filipino social media sensation Yeo Kaa. Strong artistic representation from international cultural mavericks such as Commonwealth & Council (Los Angeles) and 47 Canal (New York) as well as regional leaders including The Drawing Room (Manila) and Lawangwangi Art Gallery (Bandung) underscore the industry’s interest to participate in a platform that amplifies the region’s creative networks. Jasdeep Sandhu, Gallery Director and Founder of Gajah Gallery welcomed this development, “I look forward to leveraging on the unique opportunity presented by S.E.A. Focus to showcase works by Indonesian artist, Octura Chan. The size of the fair makes it a good platform for such an artist to make her debut”, he shared.
S.E.A. Focus also revealed a suite of programmes to provide a comprehensive experience for visitors. #SEAcity will include presentations by partner institutions and lifestyle brands across Singapore; #SEAcommunity is designed for children and school groups to deepen their appreciation of art; and #SEAspotlight will be a talks programme featuring artists, gallerists, and curators from the region.
