Art pieces of the fifth edition of the Singapore Biennale reflect the theme An Atlas Of Mirrors
Ten years after its first edition, the Singapore Biennale is coming into its own identity – one with a focus on contemporary art in South-east Asia and an interest in fostering a deeper understanding of the culture and histories of its neighbours.
When it opens on Thursday, the biennale, this year titled An Atlas Of Mirrors, will exhibit works that map and reflect the complex social, political, geographical and historical relationships shared by people and places in Asia. Its aim is to help viewers consider how they picture the world and themselves from where they stand.
The show is organised by the Singapore Art Museum and held at eight exhibition venues. It will feature 58 works of art by 63 artists and artist collectives from 19 countries and territories in the region.
