One of the marquee events of Singapore Art Week, Light to Night Festival 2018: Colour Sensations will transform major cultural institutions and parks into spectacular works of art over two weeks in January. Spearheaded by National Gallery Singapore, in partnership with other Civic District partners – The Arts House, Victoria Theatre & Victoria Concert Hall, Asian Civilisations Museum and Esplanade – Light to Night Festival is the largest precinct-wide visual, literary and performing arts festival featuring both indoor and outdoor components that transform from day to night.
The Festival is curated for a multi-generational audience with different interests, and includes a special series of indoor works by five artists - Ho Tzu Nyen, Lee Mingwei, David Medalla, Pinaree Sanpitak and teamLab - that inspire visitors to contemplate the connection between our past, present and future. In the evening, the multi-sensory art experience will extend beyond the galleries into the outdoors, where a special art trail will feature artworks that transform eight locations within the Civic District. This includes the Art Skins on Monuments which will see 30 Singapore artists transform the facades of four iconic monuments into spectacular works of art when the lights go down.
Admission to the Festival is free.
