Stocking Stuffer! Creative Cultures: The Singapore Showcase

This one is for the collectors among you! One of the reasons I am doing this feature is purely because I want a copy … Santa, are you listening??

Anyway, this is quite the publication, showcasing the crème de la crème of the Singapore creative scene. Yes, yes, and more yes for the latest offering from Underscore, Creative Cultures: The Singapore Showcase.

(From the press release)

Creative Cultures: The Singapore Showcase is a special edition platform showcasing the works of Singapore’s creative disciplines through mediums of publication, film, website and exhibition, designed by Hjgher and curated by esteemed Japanese curator, Yoichi Nakamuta.

The publication features more than 100 Singaporean creatives, ranging from fields of art, design, music and photography, including architecture, interior, product, graphic, illustration, interactive, animation, fashion, art, photography and music.

The theme -Uncover- was established for Singapore, describing the beginning of a creative culture that has grown over the years with little history, but a freedom and hunger for experimentation. The focus is on the future, rather than its history, that defines Singaporeʼs design culture as a work in progress, inviting greater things to come. Says editor-in-chief, Justin Long, “We have the freedom to be who we want to be. We hold the power to decide our own future, not only for ourselves, but for future generations to come.” With an irreversible scratch-and-see gold hardcover, Underscore invites the reader to scratch and uncover an original curation of Singapore’s creative culture, with over 280 pages of visuals and interviews.

Creative Cultures: The Singapore Showcase is distributed by BooksActually and available online at the U store
