AN INNOVATIVE ARTS SCENE
If food is the primary national obsession of Singapore, culture comes a close second. By nature, Singaporeans are culturally curious, creatively inclined and collectively supportive of talent and innovation. Accordingly, Singapore has a thriving arts scene that spans outdoor concerts and Broadway shows to local bands and edgy public art. As Sydney has its Opera House, Singapore has the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, 60,000 square metres of beautifully designed performing arts space including a concert hall seating about 1,800 and a 1,950-capacity theatre. Meanwhile the theatres at Marina Bay Sands are drawing Broadway and West End hits such as Phantom Of The Opera, Wicked and Les Misérables. More grassroots entertainment can be found at Timbre’s portfolio of venues, where home-cooked food is served alongside homegrown musical and performance talent.
Meanwhile within the visual arts, the past five years have seen Singapore cement its reputation as an international art hub. The much-lauded ArtScience Museum unites art and science exhibitions, while the National Gallery Singapore comprises the world’s largest public collection of Singaporean and Southeast Asian art, totalling more than 8,000 artworks. Bringing together international and home-grown art galleries, Gillman Barracks visual arts cluster welcomes art lovers, collectors and the artistically curious in a buzzing centre with a packed calendar of exhibitions and events. “Culture” is a broad term in Singapore, and visitors will discover a passionate, creative community engaged in cultural efforts large and small.
