Singapore Calendar is a new, seasonal programme. For each iteration, an artist develops a work inspired by a significant date or time period. For the first iteration, artist Eugene Tan responds to the Hungry Ghost Festival.
The programme begins with a series of offerings and ends with an exhibition. The first offering is available below – a sampling of the artist’s thoughts and experiments as he develops his work.
If you would like to embark on this journey, get a ticket. You will not only witness Eugene's artistic process, but also become a part of it. As a ticket holder, you will receive two more virtual offerings, as well as an exclusive final encounter with the artist at a secret location.
