About singapore biennale 2018

Organised by the National Arts Council, Singapore, the Singapore Biennale aims to position Singapore prominently as an international centre and regional thought leader in the field of visual art. It encourages Singapore artists and Singapore to engage with the international art world, through the invitation of regional and international artists to exhibit with Singapore artists, and for Singapore to join the international community of art biennales whose language is mainly conducted through the medium of contemporary art.

As a platform for collaborations with the global arts community, the Biennale provides new opportunities for local visual artists and arts businesses, and is a significant opportunity to cultivate deeper public engagement with the arts. It complements the achievements of other areas of the arts and cultural scene, collectively enhancing Singapore’s international image as a vibrant city to live, work, play. The inaugural Singapore Biennale was held in 2006 and provided an effective platform for people to dialogue and share information and resources amongst the arts community from Singapore and the rest of the world.

The Singapore Biennale is a massive contemporary art exhibition held at various venues all over Singapore. Established in 2006, the festival aims to cultivate public engagement with visual arts through a 4-month long exhibition and workshop program.

Hosted in a range of venues including the Singapore Art Museum, the Asian Civilisations Museum, the National Museum of Singapore, Singapore Management University and The Peranakan Museum, visitors to Singapore will have no shortage of events so make sure to check out the full program when it is released.

The Singapore Biennale provides opportunities for visual artists, businesses and arts organisations to engage with the community and fosters collaboration and inspiration between the artists. The theme of the exhibition changes with each bi-annual event, and the theme is yet to be announced for the 2018-2019 event.

The Singapore Biennale also offers a range of school programs and outreach activities for the young people of Singapore and the general public so that they can enjoy the artworks and and exhibitions at a deeper level.
