Light to Night Festival is making its post-pandemic return this year for an immersive experience where art meets lifestyle.
As part of Singapore Art Week, this year's edition promises a spectacular line-up consisting of over 60 programmes and artworks by local and international artists. It is slated to be held at the Civic District from 6 to 26 January 2023. During this period, National Gallery Singapore will also offer free entry and extend its opening hours to 11 PM from Fridays to Sundays.
Highlighted programmes such as Gallery Gigs and Gallery Mix Presents Syndicate Sessions will feature exciting performances from homegrown artists Aisyah Aziz, jupiterkid, Jaime Wong, Joie Tan, Sonia Kwek, Anise, and more. The Singapore National Youth Orchestra (SNYO)'s Percussion Ensemble will also perform at the Victoria Concert Hall as part of Stroboscope — Light Beats.
This year's theme of "Here and Now" celebrates innovation and living in the present. Besides enjoying performances from our local musicians, art enthusiasts can look forward to spontaneous close encounters with exhibitions and installations that close the gap between art and personal life experiences such as Dawn Ng (Singapore)'s There Is A Window In My Eye If You Look In You Will See The Sky and Sai (Singapore)'s Hearing Padang.
