Local art showcase “Singapore: Inside Out” brings Singapore’s culinary talents to Sydney

<p>Following the success of Singapore: Inside Out Tokyo, the travelling art showcase that was conceived to highlight our local talent is heading to Sydney, this time with an even bigger lineup in tow. From <strong>Nov 3-5</strong>, Kensington Street in Sydney, Australia will come alive with an interactive showcase of installations, light projections, performances and dining presentations, from both Singaporean and Australian creatives.</p>
<p>While <a href="http://sg.asia-city.com/events/news/reconciling-creativity-and-singapore… target="_blank"><strong>SG: IO Tokyo focused largely on art and fashion exhibits</strong></a>, the Sydney event will include the culinary arts as well. Macolm Lee of Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant Candlenut will present both traditional and modern takes on Peranakan dishes, while mixologist Peter Chua will design bespoke cocktails to the theme &ldquo;Movement&rdquo;. Other culinary entities on showcase include Tarte by Cheryl Koh and New Ubin Seafood.</p>
<p>As for the visual and performing arts, some of Singapore&rsquo;s biggest names in the scene will be joining the expanded lineup for SG: IO Sydney. Of the 20 or so artists, <em>Pop Aye</em>&rsquo;s Kirsten Tan will showcase two made-in-Singapore short films; Donna Ong will present a visual installation made of steel poles, glasses and beer bottles; sound artist Zul Mahmod returns to SG: IO with another original sound installation; and local poet Joshua Ip will collaborate on a selection of excerpts from an upcoming graphic novel, <em>Ten Stories Below</em>.</p>
<p>Three local musicians have also been selected to perform as part of a music showcase held in conjunction with SG: IO Sydney. After a rigorous selection process by both Singaporean and Australian industry professionals, Linying, Sam Rui and MAS1A will join their creative counterparts in representing Singapore on a global stage. With all the mounting <strong><a href="http://sg.asia-city.com/events/news/m1-singapore-fringe-festival-takes-d… press</a></strong> surrounding how the powers that be treat the local arts scene, SG: IO might just be the saving initiative we need.</p>
