Running from 6 – 23 October, the exhibition promises to be a treat for photography connoisseurs and visitors with a sense of appreciation for art and photography. Visitors to the exhibition will embark on an exploration of the city’s subcultures and movement with vivid photos captured by notable local photographers Aik Beng Chia and Mark Teo.

Over 60 photographs will be displayed at the exhibition and the stunning collection of images focuses on the different aspects of local subcultures, such as street art, extreme sports and music, bringing to life the dreams and fantasies of the subjects within.

In addition to the photography series, photographer Mark Teo will be holding a workshop (6th October) to share his style of capturing movement. Participants will have the opportunity to take photos under Mark’s guidance. Aik Beng Chia will also holding a photography dialogue session (9th October) where he will share his experience photographing portraits in the streets of Singapore and the techniques he employs in shooting these challenging subjects in their natural environment.

For those who enjoy taking photos as much as admiring them, there will also be an ION Art Photography Contest for visitors to partake in. From 5 October to 23 October, visitors can submit their photos or videos of “movement” or street photography” with the hashtag #IONArt and #IONgraphy on Facebook or Instagram. Five lucky winners will stand to win $50 shopping vouchers each.

Besides the ION Art Photography Series 2016, art aficionados will have much to anticipate as ION Art will also be hosting the “Urban-G” art exhibitions, which will showcase the works of five painters, examining aspects of our natural environment and urban landscapes. Entry is free to all visitors from 10am-10pm daily.
