The fourth edition of Artbox, the pop-up art and lifestyle market, comes after three years away from Singapore. In other words, the wait has been long and the anticipation of its return is palpable. Although we’ll have to wait until February and March to explore the ultimate selection of food, fashion and lifestyle brands from Singapore and beyond, tickets are now on sale.
You can get yours for as little as S$5.50 or grab the multi-day admission ticket that enables you to visit every day of the art, food and shopping festival and prioritises your entry for as little as S$30. There’s a lot to explore, a lot to see and a lot to try at Artbox 2023, so six days might not even be enough.
Organisers are remaining tight-lipped regarding what visitors to Artbox can expect in the new year. However, they have promised a lineup of ”unique experiences” for 2023’s theme of Vision as well as psychedelic art and vivid colours to be paired with its pastel-hued shipping containers lit up by dreamy fairy lights.
The upcoming edition, where 300 food, fashion and lifestyle brands from Singapore and around the world, will be the pop-up’s first expo under a roof. It will transform the air-conditioned Singapore Expo Hall into a luxe “pasar malam”, but thankfully will be open both day and night.
From the little information we have garnered about the hotly-anticipated festival, visitors will encounter a creative showcase spanning gourmet food and drinks, crafts and creative products from local and international brands, art installations including digital transformations, and the future of the internet. We’re also hoping for a selection of creative workshops and carnival games, which should be making a return if past editions are anything to go by.
Artbox 2023 takes place on 24–26 February and 3–5 March 2023, from 12pm and last entry at 10pm, at Singapore Expo Hall 6. Ticket prices begin at S$5.50 for a two-hour visit but to make the most of the experience, grab the multi-day admission ticket that includes priority entry to the experience plus full-day access across all 6 days (once per day, no re-entry). Children below three years of age enter free of charge.
The fourth edition of Artbox Singapore, which originated in Bangkok, is co-organised by INVADE and SGAG.
