Prudential Singapore Eye

When Singapore was ejected from Malaysia over 50 years ago, the country was in a state of disarray through its newly acquired forced independence. But now, as the 50th anniversary to that independence date nears, it has become one of the top countries in South-East Asia, and is also one of the world’s top 12 cities to look out for in the contemporary art world.

In conjunction with this anniversary, the Prudential Eye Programme, in collaboration with the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands, is bringing to life Prudential Singapore Eye, as a key highlight to Singapore Art Week in January 2015.

The event looks to highlight and bring attention to the dynamic, young, contemporary arts scene emerging in the small sliver of land located at the tip of the main Malaysian landmass and along the Singapore Strait. On top of its focus on the growing art scene in Singapore, Prudential Singapore Eye will also look to showcase the depth and diversity of the visual arts scene and raise the countries status in the international art world.

A total of 25 artists’ work have been chosen by an international curatorial panel for the exhibition at ArtScience Museum and will also be accompanied by a comprehensive book with a selection of 75 Singapore contemporary artists’ work.

The exhibition will run from Thursday 22 – Sunday 25 January 2015.
