When you've maybe only just recovered from the festivities of the holiday season, Singapore Art Week returns again with an onslaught of events and exhibitions to whet any culture vulture's appetite - not that we're complaining! With (what seems like) a million events, exhibitions and parties happening, it's difficult to decide what to check out in the mere ten days, which is why we've put together a little list of some of the events we feel you really shouldn't miss!
