Southeast Asia Forum

In its 2016 edition, Art Stage Singapore will introduce the Southeast Asia Forum. It will emphasize the balance between art, commerce and content within larger society by taking a more focused and deeper view into broad global issues that also affect our immediate region and lives. Title Seismograph: Sensing the City – Art in the Urban Age, the inaugural Southeast Asia Forum comprises two symbiotic parts – a ticketed selling exhibition and a series of talks that is open to the public. The talks bring together architects, urbanists, social scientists, men and women of letters and artists to examine the challenges of urbanization and how cities can be re-imagined. The exhibition features 19 socially engaged artists from Southeast Asia who delve into issues and sentiments relating to extremely rapid urbanization and to the evolution of contemporary society in their own countries.
