November 2019 Highlights: Singapore Biennale 2019, Neon Lights And More

November might sound sleepy but there are plenty of big events taking place this month, including the highly anticipated Singapore Biennale 2019.

Singapore Biennale 2019

Intimate Apparitions, 2019, Mixed media installation, manipulated found objects and readymades, dimensions variable, Khairullah Rahim

The Singapore Biennale is one of the largest showcases of contemporary art on the local art calendar – the last edition in 2016 drew more than 600,000 visitors. That record will likely be surpassed with the upcoming sixth edition, which runs Nov 22 to March 22 with more than 70 artists and collectives from more than 20 countries taking part, all addressing how art can be used to address the current dire state of the world (environmental, political —take your pick). Stay tuned for more details on the Biennale – we’ll be reporting back after the media preview.

Pictured above: Singapore artist Khairullah Rahim‘s beautiful piece – he’s known for magicking found objects into dreamy assemblages that, as we noted in our January 2019 issue, “delight and confound with their colours and tactile textures.”
