Singapore Art Review 2012: Article is back!
The International Association of Art Critics (AICA Sg) is back with a new edition of Article
, a local newspaper tabloid-like publication which previously covered the Singapore Art Show
and the Singapore Biennale
this year will focus on the newly established Gillman Barracks art galleries precinct. Being a major investment in art infrastructure, Article
believes that the location will generate discourse among the art community. With this in mind, Article
hopes to help develop and frame some of these discussions and debates for the wider audience. In addition, this publication hopes to also situate this new development in the larger context, discussing topics such as art infrastructure, education, research, criticism, collecting, curating and the development of contemporary art in Singapore and the region.
Want a copy? The publication is now available at selected galleries, major arts spaces, libraries, and at selected F&B outlets.

Following the 2011/12 National Arts Education (NAE) Award Ceremony in February this year, NAC’s Arts Education team organised a sharing platform titled, Confluence, on 28 August 2012 at the Goodman Arts Centre. The event celebrated the achievements of the schools and gave them an opportunity to share their journeys in developing the arts in their respective schools.
also gave educators and schools a chance to network and learn from one another. It was attended by 180 participants from over 100 schools ranging from primary to junior college level.
The call for applications from schools for NAE Award 2013 will take place in February next year. Interested schools are advised to look out for a series of briefing sessions to be conducted in Oct/Nov 2012 to familiarise themselves with the NAE Award's framework.
