HELP US GROW THE SG ART BOOK LIBRARY


SGABF is accepting submissions to the SG Art Book Library, a catalogue of published print materials that explore the creative possibilities of art book publishing to generate meaningful discourse. The Library believes in the importance of representing the diversity of our community, capturing the energy, vision, and voices of artists and practitioners.

Our collection prioritises art books that focus on sociopolitical concerns in Singapore and around the world—gender inequality, racial discrimination, human rights, LGBTQ+ issues, political activism, intersectional feminism, economic and environment struggles, and many more. We want to provide a safe, accessible space for art books that might not otherwise find their way into institutional collections.

Existing as a virtual space below, and occupying various physical spaces in Singapore over the course of the year, the Library is free and available for all to browse.

CITY OF BOOKS

Various Artists

OH!Open House, 2018
Welcome to Bras Basah Complex.
Here, among the bookshops you will find a second-hand store with wobbling towers of books, traditional almanac calendars in a Chinese bookstore and a beloved, knowledgeable art and design bookseller. What happens when three artists take inspiration from this space?
A billboard for books. A set of infographic banners. A fort made out of calendars. Each tells a different story about the City of Books. Look out for these outdoor installations among the bookstores.
In the middle of it all, interact with the story of kid detective Sherlock Sam who is brought to life in a fantastical playground on the spiral staircase.
