Singapore International Photography Festival 2010

If you happen to be passing Singapore as you do, pop in to take a look at the shows. Especially the Lim Hak Tai Gallery. Good Aul stuff!

5 - 24 October 2010 at Galleries 1 & 2
15 October - 7 November 2010 at Lim Hak Tai Gallery
The Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) is proud to present two exhibitions from the second Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF). Organized every two years, the festival is a platform for regional artists to showcase their works alongside their international peers. There are two distinct categories with an open-ended theme of “Human: Nature” in the open call for submissions. The works will be showcased at various venues across Singapore, including Galleries 1 & 2 and Lim Hak Tai Gallery at NAFA Campus 1.
The galleries at NAFA will be showcasing a variety of photographic styles from 13 selected artists. With over 160 images to wow the senses, the works come from as near as Singapore, Vietnam, Myanmar and further afield as Germany, Ireland, Mexico, Sweden and the USA and are being exhibited for the first time in Singapore.
The photographers were handpicked by Ms Bridget Tracy Tan, Director, Institute of Southeast Asian Arts & Art Galleries, NAFA, who is one of the four curators for the 2010 festival. She says, “The partnership with SIPF demonstrates our desire to engage in and cultivate exchange in wider platforms of contemporary art and its discourse. Photography encompasses many genres including that which resides in Fine Art and Design & Media. As a contemporary medium it is continually evolving, and a broad showcase such as the SIPF provides both content and context for furthering our discourse and appreciation of this discipline regionally, as well as around the world.”
We cordially invite the media to attend and cover the event:
