The four-month-long international contemporary art exhibition is organised by SAM and commissioned by the National Arts Council of Singapore. Over 80 percent of the Singapore Biennale artworks are new commissions or adaptations of works. Featuring several site-specific and works never seen beforeon the biennale circuit, the Biennale artworks respond to the title of An Atlas of Mirrors, and explore notions of space, time, memory, nature, boundaries, agency, identity, displacement and absence. "An Atlas of Mirrors references the atlases and mirrors that have been instrumental in humankind's exploration of the world as we navigate and map our journeys into the unknown. It is hoped that the evocative title, which guided its curatorial direction, would intrigue and inspire audiences to explore and experience the many ways of seeing our world and ourselves," says Dr Susie Lingham, Creative Director, Singapore Biennale 2016. Various programmes will be taking place over the course of the exhibition, including artist and curator talks and tours, artist workshops, community days and a symposium in January 2017.
