Singapore's largest arts week celebration is back and tourists will get to anticipate tons of gallery openings, calligraphy seminar and workshops, film entertainment, art tours and installments on January 10 to 22. Follow their programme for you not to miss this event!

If you head out to Bras Basah & Bugis, ink artist Nan Qi, will be back for his second solo exhibition starting from January 5. Five days later, tourists will get to witness the 2017 Singapore International Miniature Sculpture Exhibition at Dhouby Ghout with a theme flowing from equating 'seeing' with 'knowledge.' We will be seeing more of artworks about post-war conundrums and visceral and humorous works in Bras Basah & Bugis.

At Civic District & Marina Bay, art groups will treat locals and visitors alike with its retrospective artworks, and the celebration of the Contemporary Printmaking Festival 2017. The highpoint of the celebration is an exhibition by 20 artists and printmakers. Each one of them will display a special edition of their hand-printed artist's book.

From spatial installation to photography, book launching and landscapes, Gillman Barracks will showcase William S.W. Lim's exploration of 'indeterminacy and changeability of urban living.' Calligraphy, pop works, art objects and stunning aerial photos will dominate the vicinity for the arts festival.

In Kampong Glam, artists will exhibit 'Mereka Utusan: Imprinting Malay Modernity 1920s - 1960s,' to provide responsiveness into the development of Malay modernity and identity through advertisements and editorial cartoons produced in the said era.

An exhibition of historical artifacts and contemporary art installations will take over Little India as Singapore gets to tell the history of the neighborhood. An art tour will also take place in the town as art murals there get to showcase India's culture.

The 'Sticker Lady' has once again strike and is about to take center stage at Orchard Road & Dempsey Hill for her 'witty and gently subversive placement of stickers on the city's pedestrian crossings, bins, and CCTV cameras.'

The Art Apart Fair 9th Edition will exhibit artworks of 100 international artists just around SG's famous shopping place. Art groups will also be celebrating their anniversaries as well.

Multimedia art exhibits will happen on Riverside and other points of interest in Singapore's art scene. More film, art tours, charcoal and seminars will take place during the Singapore Art Week 2017.
