The Singapore Night Festival, one of the red dot’s more anticipated art festivals, is back again in August for its 13th edition! Themed Rebirth, this year’s festival will light up the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct with more than 55 vibrant and eclectic experiences. Each display will illuminate the island’s lesser-known stories, and you can expect a wide range of activities such as projection-mapping installations, 14 Night Lights installations, experiential programmes and loads of food and retail fun! Those looking forward to performances are in for a treat, too, as there will be more than 30 performances by various performing arts groups. Selected local artists will also share their capabilities – think design skills and processes for projection-mapping installations – in Masterclass workshops.

Want a sneak peek into Singapore Night Festival 2022? Check out these highlights:

1. Glitches of You by Amanda Tan
This projection-mapping installation explores a multicultural modern identity in glitch art and fractured pixels. The piece is inspired by Amanda’s personal history and experience, as a child of dual cultures. The projection embraces the Stamford Court clock tower and takes you on a fragmented visual journey where the past meets the present.
Date: 19 – 27 August 2022
Time: 7:30pm – midnight
Venue: Stamford Clock Tower

The artwork is interactive and is activated by sounds captured in the space. It’s a beautiful lesson in highlighting how human activities are the catalyst for change in the surrounding environment.
