The fifth edition of the Singapore Biennale opened yesterday and runs till February 26, 2017. Featuring 58 works by 63 artists and art collectives from 19 countries and territories in Southeast Asia, East and South Asia, over 80 per cent of the works are new commissions or adaptations for the event.
The theme this year – “An Atlas Of Mirrors” – is, according to the Biennale’s creative director Susie Lingham, a referencing of “the atlases and mirrors that have been instrumental in humankind’s exploration of the world as we navigate and map our journeys into the unknown.”
Here, seven works spread across the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) and the National Museum of Singapore (NMS) that we consider unmissable:
Things To Do In Singapore: Singapore Mental Health Film Festival, Graduate Fashion Show & Textile Art Exhibition
Things To Do In Singapore: Loewe Craft Prize Virtual Exbhition, An Unusual Floral Arrangement Class & Immersive Mixed Reality Exhibition
Things To Do In Singapore: A Video Game-As-Art Exhibition, A LGBTQ Film Festival & An Exhibition Empowering The Female Gaze
