LEARNING GALLERY: ONCE UPON THIS ISLAND

A PARALLEL PROJECT OF THE SINGAPORE BIENNALE 2016

Singapore Biennale 2016 Parallel Project SAM LEARNING GALLERY: ONCE UPON THIS ISLAND

The Learning Gallery presents artworks selected to promote engagement and discussion of broader issues through contemporary art. Once Upon This Island is the latest show exploring the stories and lives that surround us and abound on this island-nation. Featuring selected works from the Singapore Art Museum’s permanent collection as well as new commissions, Once Upon This Island navigates ideas of home, community, identity and memory, and raises pertinent and timely questions on what it means to live in contemporary Singapore – an urbanised, ever-changing city-state and island, set between peninsula and archipelago.
