Singapore Biennale 2013: IF THE WORLD CHANGED

The Singapore Biennale 2013 is back! Held once every 2 years, the Singapore Biennale was established in 2006 to allow artists to collaborate with the international arts community.

The exhibition will be starting tomorrow and will run through 16th Feb 2014. Titled, IF THE WORLD CHANGED, the  artists explored the question of how has the world changed for Southeast Asia? What kind of world would you want to live in?  The exhibition explores concepts such as spirituality; histories, ancestries and futures; the self and the other; exchanges as well as nature and geographies.
