First Peek at Singapore Biennale 2013

 The Singapore Biennale 2013 announced its selection of the first 52 out of the 80 or so artists planned for its fourth edition coming up in October.

Eko Prawoto
 They mainly hail from Southeast Asia and were chosen to demonstrate the breadth of art styles and practices in the region. Many are little known and have never exhibited before, a deliberate decision reflecting the grassroots approach the 27 co-curators of this Biennale decided to take.

Around forty percent of the works have been especially commissioned for the Biennale, which will run from Oct 26 until February 16, 2014.
Suzann Victor

ARTINFO selected a few of the more promising art projects announced, such as Suzann Victor’s “Rainbow Circle” (working title) that will be created in the rotunda of the National Museum of Singapore, Eko Prawoto’s dramatic bamboo installation “Wormhole” which will be installed outdoor, and Prateet Suthathongthai’s “Stillness of Reflection” (working title), a collage of photographs and silk-screen creating an optical illusion that will be situated in the Singapore Art Museum’s courtyard.
