Singapore Biennale 2016 at the National Museum

Level 1
10am – 7pm
Free admission

From where we are, how do we picture the world – and ourselves?

Exploring shared histories and current realities within and beyond the region, the fifth edition of the Singapore Biennale will be a constellation of artistic perspectives that provide unexpected ways of seeing the world and ourselves. Titled An Atlas of Mirrors, Singapore Biennale 2016 will feature contemporary artworks by more than 60 artists across Southeast Asia, and East and South Asia.

The Singapore Biennale artworks will be clustered around nine sub-themes and presented across seven venues – Singapore Art Museum and SAM at 8Q, Asian Civilisations Museum, de Suantio Gallery at SMU, National Museum of Singapore, Stamford Green, Old Parliament House and Peranakan Museum. Three of the artworks, by artists David Chan, Debbie Ding and Subodh Gupta, will be located at the National Museum of Singapore.
