Singapore Biennale 2013 | If the World Changed


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. Titled If the World Changed, the fourth 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.

Singapore Biennale 2013 features the works of 82 artists and artist collectives from the region and beyond, with a 27-member curatorial team. The focus of SB2013 also goes beyond the major metropolitan centres to present a greater diversity of artistic practices that reference urgent and key issues in our contemporary world.

Singapore Biennale 2013 is organised by the Singapore Art Museum and supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, National Arts Council and National Heritage Board in Singapore.
