Held in conjunction with a documentary film project by Filmat36, as part of the celebration of Singapore’s bicentennial during the Singapore Art Week, artcommune gallery proudly presents Memories of Singapore River: Paintings by Local Artists. Many second-generation Singapore artists have held a deep affinity for Singapore River,being one of the favourite locations where they often gathered to paint en plein air, especially in the 1970s and 80s. Beyond its economic value as a trading port, the iconic landmark was a significant source of inspiration for many of them.


Featuring more than 15 artworks from the early post-independence years to the recent years,this special showcase provides a recollection of the nostalgic Singapore River rendered in various mediums and artistic expressions. The exhibition is on view at The Fullerton Hotel, East Garden Foyer, from 19 January to 2 February 2019.
