After a delay last year owing to the pandemic, the much-awaited Singapore Biennale 2022 will kick off this Sunday, Oct 16. The Singapore Biennale (SB) is now in its seventh edition and this year, the pre-eminent contemporary arts festival comes with several notable twists.
Helmed by a four-person curatorial team comprising co-artistic directors Binna Choi, Nida Ghouse, June Yap and Ala Younis (all art practitioners or working in art institutions), this year’s edition of the SB is christened Natasha, in order to ground the biennale with a more intimate human touch.
If you ask us, it’s not a bad approach to take, considering how biennales and other art festivals on this scale are extremely sprawling events that can be overwhelming with things to see and check out, oftentimes spread out over many locations (more on this later).
This year’s edition sees more than 50 artists and collaborators from all around the world showcasing works at Natasha, which runs from Oct 16 to March 19, 2023. Ahead, a breakdown of what to look out for.
