Creative Cultures: The Singapore Showcase is an Underscore publication showcasing Singapore’s creative disciplines featuring more than 120 Singaporean creatives, ranging from the fields of art, design, music and photography with over 280 pages of visuals and interviews.
The theme, Uncover, was established for Singapore, describing the emergence of a new creative culture. With Singapore’s identity as a creative culture still uncast and in its infancy, the focus lies in its future. With no baggage of a past, it now has the power to learn from others, to be experimental and to forge its own distinct identity.
With an irreversible scratch-and-see gold foil hardcover, each book will have a unique hardcover, randomly and organically scratched depending on how its reader handles the book. The names of all featured creatives are printed on the front cover beneath the gold foil, so readers are invited to scratch and “uncover” what lies underneath.
