For the first time, the biennial Singapore International Photography Festival will be hosted in a purpose-built space.
In the past, it has been held at venues including museums and an art gallery. Containers have been used for this fourth edition as the organisers plan to take the containers to different places in the future and relook aspects of sustainability for art.
The viewing space is made up of 19 containers that will be housed in Prinsep Street. Called Deck, the space will feature the works selected from an open call which attracted 1,038 submissions from 64 countries.
Curators comprising academics, writers and established photographers Tay Kay Chin, Dr Charles Merewether, Dr Adele Tan and Alexander Supartono have selected 47 portfolios featuring works of photographers from 23 countries for this year's festival. It will run from Oct 3 to Nov 30.
