Singapore as your destination for the Visual Arts

Complementing Singapore’s position as the Asian hub for business, finance and education is Singapore’s growing importance as a centre for contemporary art in Asia. Events such as the Singapore Biennale, Art Stage Singapore, complemented by public museums, non-profit spaces and commercial galleries, have created a vibrant arts scene that is making waves in the region and beyond. The contemporary arts scene has seen steady growth in the last 10 years, with increasing local and regional interest in events, exhibitions and education. As the number of venues dedicated to contemporary art increases, more international artists are choosing to unveil their new works to the world from Singapore, thus cementing its position as the centre for contemporary art in Asia.

The deliberate development of the local contemporary art industry in the past decade by the state has resulted in a vibrant arts scene that has been propelled by growing commercial activities including gallery exhibitions, art fairs and auctions. Coupled with Singapore’s strategic position within Asia and an extensive infrastructure of support services, there is no better place to establish your contemporary art gallery in this region.

Gillman Barracks

Gillman Barracks will be the new contemporary art destination in Asia. Distinguished as creative and intellectual centre, it will become a centre for the production, discussion and distribution of contemporary art in Asia. Complementing the local and international galleries and creative industries will be several new initiatives designed to grow the visual arts ecosystem in region, particularly in the areas of exhibition, residencies, and research.

Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Singapore

Anchored within Gillman Barracks will be the newly established Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Singapore which will be one of the key programming platforms in this new contemporary art destination in Asia. Through its diverse exhibition, residency and research programmes, CCA Singapore aims to be the centre for the production, presentation and interpretation of the arts of our times as well as a catalyst for the exchange of ideas and creative expressions.

Exhibition Centre
Devoted to the presentation of innovative and groundbreaking exhibitions of contemporary art, CCA Singapore’s exhibition programmes embrace a global, multi-disciplinary, and diverse approach towards the presentation and interpretation of contemporary art, showcasing the latest developments through exhibitions, as well as new projects by significant and emerging Singapore, international and Asian artists.

International Artist Residency Programme (IARP)
The International Artist Residency Programme (IARP) will be Singapore’s first internationally-tiered offering that will facilitate the production and creation of works by significant established and emerging international and Asian artists and establish Singapore as a centre for contemporary art creation in the region.

Centre for Contemporary Art Research
The Centre for Contemporary Art Research will be a centre of excellence for the study and research for contemporary art in the region. It will contribute to the discourse and knowledge on Asian and international art production as well as informing the context of cultural production today.
