Organised by the Singapore Art Museum and supported by the National Arts Council, Singapore, the Singapore Biennale aims to position Singapore prominently as an international centre and regional thought leader in the field of visual art. It encourages Singapore artists and Singapore to engage with the international art world, through the invitation of regional and international artists to exhibit with Singapore artists, and for Singapore to join the international community of art biennales whose language is mainly conducted through the medium of contemporary art.
As a platform for collaborations with the global arts community, the Biennale provides new opportunities for Singapore visual artists and arts businesses, and is a significant opportunity to cultivate deeper public engagement with the arts. It complements the achievements of other areas of the arts and cultural scene, collectively enhancing Singapore’s international image as a vibrant city to live, work, play.
The next edition of the Singapore Biennale will be from 13 March 2011 to 15 May 2011. For more information, visit the event website here.
