Every year on Singapore Art Week, the facade of historic buildings in The Civic District comes to life with spellbinding light projections. Light to Night Festival is returning once more from January 14 to February 3. A marquee event for Singapore Art Week, the Light to Night Festival continues taking the form of a redefined, hybrid experience.
Perennial crowd favourite Art Skins on Monuments is returning. Adorning the facade of National Gallery Singapore Refractioned by Metamo Industries with Benedict & Palmer, which reinterprets Singapore's iconic architecture. In the Gallery itself, the walls of the Rotunda Library & Archive are also brought to life with an audio-visual experience that explores the way we collect and interpret different types of archival materials.
Another highlight of this year's festival can be found in the middle of the Padang. Flight by LiteWerkz is an interactive installation inspired by the flight of birds that encourages introspection and self-discovery. The installation responds to Bluetooth signals emitted from mobile devices, generating a symphony of light and colours and reorientating one's perception of space. Fragment of a Shoreline, in contrast, brings back to the Padang's history, where festival-goers sit at a reconstructed shoreline from the 1800s as multisensorial features prompt them to reflect on their individual experiences – all with Singapore's skyline in the distance.
Music lovers shouldn't miss this year's Gallery Gigs and Funny Fridays with artists such as KEYANA, Kumar and Sezairi. Art x Social, the beloved festival village also returns with exciting activities like craft-making activities, an aura photobooth, claw machines, local craft shops and more.
And lastly, don't miss Move For?ward (Unseen: Inside Out), a multi-sensory art installation that spotlights the visually impaired community. You'll navigate through a web of strings while listening to stories of 12 individuals from the visually impaired community.
