Commissioned by the National Arts Council Singapore, it will consist of 25 galleries with works from over 50 artists from around the world. Collectors will also get first dibs on the exhibition where they can acquire these artworks.
The theme of the exhibition, commissioned by the National Arts Council Singapore, is “a world, anew”. It is meant to reflect the renewed opportunities presented to artists and galleries post-pandemic.
Apart from paintings, sculptures and art installations will also be displayed during the event.
The showcase can be explored freely, with specially designed spaces for experimental art installations by emerging artists.
The exhibition space in 2023 will also feature a new platform called Collaborations, showcasing large-scale works made possible through the collaborative efforts of the artists.
Another part of the event, the Fringe Film Programme, will see short films, animations and other video works being screened. Held in collaboration with indie cinema The Projector, the 2023 edition of the Fringe Programme will be hosted at their flagship space at Golden Mile Tower.
Other activities that will take place at the event include special showcases and digital experiences that will engage both art enthusiasts and casual enjoyers.
For collectors looking to purchase the works showcased, S.E.A. Focus is partnering with the global online art marketplace Artsy to provide a platform for buyers.
