New strides for Sullivan+Strumpf in the Lion City

Sullivan+Stumpf Singapore Studio to open in Kallang this June.

Words: Erin Irwin

Sullivan+Strumpf have announced they are expanding their operations with a physical space in Singapore, revealing that the Sullivan+Strumpf Singapore Studio will soon open as an international touchpoint for the gallery. From there, the gallery – which currently has spaces in Sydney and Melbourne – it will seek to broaden its programs across Asia, Europe and North America.

The gallery already has a significant presence in the South East Asian country, with Director Megan Arlin having helmed this arm of the gallery since 2016. Arlin says that she is “thrilled to build on the Gallery’s outstanding relationships and reputation in Asia and lead the development of new activity on the international stage”. Arlin will be joined by Associate Director Mariia Zhuchenko, who is heading over from Sullivan+Strumpf’s Sydney space.

The Studio will be christened with an exhibition of works by Singapore-based artist Kanchana Gupta. Gupta’s works utilise materiality and texture to respond to urban environments, drawing on her experiences in the bustling cities of Mumbai and Singapore. Her show will be followed by a presentation of works by Spanish artist Carmen Ceniga Prado, before the gallery heads to Indonesia for Art Jakarta.

The space is set to open Sunday June 2, located at Lavender St, CT Hub 2, #07 – 56, Singapore.
