The Gallery Children’s Biennale has been a key programme of National Gallery Singapore since 2017, embodying the Gallery’s commitment to inspiring young, curious minds with art. It aims to explore the many ways that children can learn and play while also engaging more with the world around them.
This year, the Biennale features 11 interactive and immersive artworks responding to the theme of “Let’s Make A Better Place,” inviting children and adults to discover how we can create a world built upon this year’s core values of care, respect, imagination and collaboration.
Ten artists from Singapore and beyond conceived new artworks for the Biennale. These artists are: Arahmaiani (Indonesia), Chiang Yu Xiang (Singapore), International Museum of Children’s Art (Norway), Fadilah Karim (Malaysia), LittleCr3atures® (Singapore) x Jevon Chandra (Singapore/Indonesia) x Lynette Quek (Singapore), Tawatchai Puntusawasdi (Thailand), Izziyana Suhaimi (Singapore), Wang Ruobing (Singapore), Kumi Yamashita (Japan/USA), and Ly Yeow (Singapore).
Centred on art created for, with, and by children, the Biennale is a warm and welcoming space for everyone to have conversations about their dreams, ideas, and even struggles. This edition also includes both digital and on-site programmes that will inspire visitors of all ages.
