The ArtScience Museum at the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) casino resort in Singapore, is to host a “Star Wars Identities” exhibition, from January 30 to June 13, according to a press release from the property. The event is said to mark the final stop of a global tour by the exhibition.
It will include “200 authentic props, models, costumes and art work” from the Star Wars films, the press release noted. The exhibition will also feature Star Wars filmmaking materials and processes, including early-concept drawings, storyboards, and information on model making, puppetry and costume design.
The exhibition has been developed and produced by Montreal-based X3 Productions, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd, the latter a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Co, which owns certain rights to Star Wars. The staging of the exhibition at the ArtScience Museum is being organised by event producer Pico Pro Pte Ltd.
The ArtScience Museum, opened in February 2011, had previously hosted exhibitions of works by, respectively, artists including Leonardo da Vinci, M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Vincent Van Gogh.
