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. Singapore Biennale 2016 also marks the inaugural Asian edition of the Benesse Prize, organised by Benesse Holdings, Inc (Benesse) and SAM. Awarded at the Venice Biennale for the last 10 editions, the winner of the 11th Benesse Prize will receive a commission to create a work to be exhibited at Benesse Art Site Naoshima and a cash prize of JPY 3,000,000 from Benesse.
