The popular anime/manga franchise Attack on Titan is coming to Singapore: this time through an upcoming art exhibition to be held at the ArtScience Museum under the popular Marina Bay Sands venue. The art exhibition will officially go live on February 19 and will conclude by July 3 this year.
As the exhibition is organized by Singapore-based interior design company SPACElogic, Attack on Titan: The Exhibition will be premiering in Southeast Asia at the ArtScience Museum during the highly-anticipated release of The Final Season Part 2 of the anime adaptation.
Visitors at the ArtScience Museum will be met with some of Hajime Isayama’s storytelling and artistic endeavors over the past decade. Featuring over 180 artworks by Hajime Isayama ranging from the manga’s earliest days to the present, the Attack on Titan: The Exhibition will also showcase new pieces that have not been displayed anywhere else, alongside drafts and sketches from his archives.
Furthermore, visitors entering the exhibition will have the option of picking a route and starting their journey as someone born inside or outside the walls. As the paths diverge, the opposing factions will focus on different aspects of the battle – the Devils residing on Paradis Island and the Warriors bent on destroying the walls – before they converge in an inevitable collision.
In the next portion of the exhibition, visitors will get a glimpse of the world of Titans who appear to leap from the pages and wall panels. Visitors will learn more about iconic characters like Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Levi, Reiner, and Erwin as they fight for survival and unravel the mystery of Titans.
Another highlight of the exhibition is The Great Titan Theater, where visitors will be able to witness an epic clash between the Attack and Armoured Titan. As the battle unfolds across a 10-meter screen, visitors will be presented with a spectacle set among the ruins of a battlefield.
Lastly, The exhibition will include an interview with Hajime Isayama, who will speak about the manga and reflect on the decade he spent creating it. In addition to its immersive environment, interactive displays, and behind-the-scenes content, the exhibition will mark the manga’s conclusion and the anime’s final season.
“Singapore is a familiar place for me as it was my first ever trip abroad, both personally and for work. I gave a lecture on Attack on Titan at the National University of Singapore and also travelled there with Isayama-sensei for a separate holiday. I have many wonderful memories of Singapore and it would not be an exaggeration to say that holding Attack on Titan: The Exhibition here was a long-cherished wish of ours. We look forward to sharing new and wonderful memories with the people of Singapore, and hope to see you all at the exhibition!”Shintaro Kawakubo, Attack on Titan Editor, Weekly Shonen Jump Editorial Department, Kodansha.
“ArtScience Museum is delighted to be working with SPACElogic and the Attack on Titan team in Japan to bring this cultural phenomenon to Singapore for the first time. With Attack on Titan: The Exhibition, our visitors will encounter the creative vision behind one of the world’s most successful manga stories, seeing why the series has gained such international acclaim for its compelling characters, complex themes and technical artistry.”Honor Harger, Vice President of Attractions, Marina Bay Sands.

It has already been 10 years since I started writing Attack on Titan. I would first like to thank all the readers and parties involved for their company throughout all these years. Heading towards the end of the series, I am currently doing everything I can so that your reaction will be “I am glad I kept reading until now”. I hope you enjoy the Attack on Titan FINAL Exhibition and I would be happy if you continue engaging with Attack on Titan in the future.Hajime Isayama, during the Attack on Titan: The Exhibition event in 2019
