Singapore Biennale 2013
Date: 26 October 2013 to 16 February 2014
Venue: Bras Basah Bugis Precinct
Description: A biennal art celebration of epic proportions. The rich cultures and geographies of the Southeast Asian region have historically been the corridor of the world’s major civilisations. The ebb and flow of these complex cultural interactions have yielded responses of accommodation and resistance, leaving legacies of layering and sedimentation within the varied communities. In the 21st century, the speed of transformation in Southeast Asia is perhaps beyond anything experienced by preceding generations. This change is prompting multiple conceptions and perceptions of time and our worlds, both the external and internal. Against this backdrop of past and continuous change, artists have been reflecting, mediating, envisioning, and making propositions. If The World Changed, the title of the 4th Singapore Biennale, is an invitation to artists to respond to and reconsider the worlds we live in, and the worlds we want to live in.
