As the three-weekend long dynamic festival provides everyone with access to both outstanding local and international acts, SIFA continues to grow and serve as a testament to the vibrant arts scene that Singapore plays host to in the region.

3/4Manuel Ocampo: Ideological Mash-Up/Remix

What Filipino artist Manuel Ocampo has accumulated a wealth of experience over the past two decades. Having exhibited at prestigious platforms such as the Venice Biennale in 1993, he continues to inspire viewers with his visual compositions and it's inherent symbolism. Presenting a response to today's global culture of consumption, Ocampo's work does so by exploring the role of one's identity amidst the chaos and depicts fragmented paintings where the familiar and arbitrary contrast one another. His solo exhibition, held at the STPI Gallery, runs for a month.
