2nd Singapore Biennale

11 September - 16 November 2008

Artistic Director: Fumio Nanjo

Curators: Joselina Cruz and Matthew Ngui

68 participants


The Japanese curator and art critic Fumio Nanjo, currently director of the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, was already the artistic director of the 1st Singapore Biennale in 2006. He is also in charge of the Biennale's second edition, with Joselina Cruz and Matthew Ngui as co-curators.

Theme "Wonder"

Through its theme "Wonder," the SB2008 investigates the articulation and creation of marvels, riddles and illusions in our world today. The artworks in the exhibition call the visitors to question and be curious; to reach beyond the surface, surpassing the apparent; and to be surprised, awed, tantalized and challenged.

According to Fumio Nanjo, the artworks selected or newly developed with the artists, attempt to cut through the fabric of the politically and socially constructed and perceptual limits of our world.
