You thought the Singapore Biennale was the only one biennale revealing their plans today? There’s one more. The 3rd Singapore International Photography Festival.
I’ve to admit I’ve a soft spot for this festival by the 2902 Gallery folks led by Gwen Lee. Since 2008, it’s been chugging along with good quality work and, post-fest, has been travelling overseas quite a bit. Despite little government funding.
It will run from Oct 5 to Nov 17 at seven venues. Aside from exhibitions, workshops, talks and film-screenings, they’re going full on with community/student engagement. Yes, even they’ve been bitten by the bug, but the programme’s pretty solid. More on that later.
