Since its beginning in 2006 the Singapore Biennale has become one of the biggest art events in Southeast Asia. The fourth edition opened on October 27 2013. If The World Changed, the title is an invitation to artists to respond to and reconsider the worlds we live in, and the worlds we want to live in. 

 This year sees a bold new collaborative structure employed: rather than a singe authorial voice, a team of co-curators, made up of 27 art professionals -- each with distinct knowledge of Southeast Asian art practices, have been selected. 

Featuring works by 82 artists and artist collectives from 13 countries, SB2013 has harnessed the diverse energy of the Southeast Asian region. Aiming to push beyond the familiar, the SB2013 features artists who hail not only from major metropolitan areas but also from lesser known regions such as Cambodia and Laos allowing for a diverse range of practices to be seen. 

The Biennale runs from 26 October 2013 to 16 February 2014.
