Pop-up exhibition to celebrate Singapore's creative talents and their works next year

SINGAPORE - A pop-up exhibition showcasing Singapore's creative talents and their works will travel to Beijing, New York and London starting from April next year.

It will make a final stop in Singapore in November next year for a 10-day presentation.

Titled "Singapore: Inside Out", the exhibition will feature the works of local talents across a spectrum of disciplines, such as architecture, design, fashion and performing arts.

Part of Singapore's 50th birthday celebrations, the initiative is led by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and supported by the National Arts Council and the DesignSingapore Council.

STB's assistant chief executive Melissa Ow said it is timely to celebrate the achievements of Singapore's creative talents as the country turns 50.

"While Singapore is renowned for its business-city credentials, less is known about our creative sector," she said. "Through Singapore: Inside Out, we hope to spark conversations in 2015 and beyond about the creative talent and work emerging from our city."

The showcase will be set within a 25m by 30m scaffolding structure, designed by the project's creative director, architect and artist Randy Chan, and his team.

Visitors can expect "an engaging and immersive experience specially designed to surprise and challenge their current perceptions of Singapore", he said.

More details of the showcase, such as who and what will be featured, will be shared early next year.
