SINGAPORE. Love it or hate it, no Southeast Asian can avoid this rich city state. It became a transportation hub, place with some of the best medical facilities in the world, the best art galleries, theaters and museums in Southeast Asia, as well as the best libraries, research centers and schools. Known for its obsession with business, Singapore is now trying to
change its image and identity - it is spending hundreds of millions of dollars on new museums, concert halls and art schools, trying to become one of the art capitals of the world. Considering racial and cultural diversity of its population, it may actually succeed. However, don't expect 'revolutionary art' - one that we are used to in Venezuela, Cuba, even Chile. This is going to be 'art business' - quite foreign term to Latinos and many Europeans, but very hip stuff here!
