Singapore Unseen exhibition brought together “ordinary” scenes from the daily life in Singapore through unique viewpoints of photographers living in the country. Curated by photographer Kay Chin TAY, the exhibition was the outcome of a two-year collaboration by PLATFORM- a photography collective to promote photojournalism and documentary work in Singapore. This exhibition was an in-depth study into the nation's rather unknown face solely visible from a local perspective.
There have been comprehensive photography projects aimed at chronicling certain defining moments in the history of Singapore, like the published books such as A Salute to Singapore published in 1984 and Singapore: Island, City, State in 1990. The former offered a more frivolous and outsider view of the lifestyle, whereas the latter presented a relatively more in-depth study regarding the daily life and the ordinary.
In the course of time, photography in Singapore has demonstrated major progress and most importantly, many local photographers feel the urge to tackle contemporary concerns and issues. Focusing on their homeland, these photographers present their own singular angle of their experience. Formed by professional documentary photographers and photojournalists, the PLATFORM group supports works that offer a distinctive, unique view into Singapore.

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development.
