Exploring shared histories and current realities within and beyond the region, Singapore Biennale 2016 will be a constellation of artistic perspectives that provide unexpected ways of seeing the world and ourselves.
Titled “An Atlas of Mirrors“, the international contemporary art exhibition will feature site-specific and never seen before contemporary artworks by more than 60 artists across Southeast Asia, and East and South Asia.
The opening weekend of SB2016 promises several activities ranging from capsule presentations by artists, curator tours, artist workshops and performances by artists such as Chia Chuyia, Melati Suryodarmo, Azizan Paiman and Sakarin Krue-On. The full list of opening weekend activities can be found in Annex D. SB2016 will be anchored at the Singapore Art Museum on Bras Basah Road and Queen Street. Venues include Singapore Art Museum and SAM at 8Q, Asian Civilisations Museum, de Suantio Gallery at SMU, National Museum of Singapore, Stamford Green, and Peranakan Museum. Taking place from 27 October 2016 to 26 February 2017, the four-month long international contemporary art exhibition is organised by SAM and commissioned by the National Arts Council of Singapore.
