Discover worlds of wonder with art at Gallery Children’s Biennale
- The second edition of Gallery Children’s Biennale will feature 11 interactive artworks set to the theme of ‘Embracing Wonder’
- Winner of the Children in Museums Award 2018, the Keppel Centre for Art Education at National Gallery Singapore will welcome three reimagined spaces that encourage creativity, imagination and self-led exploration.
Singapore, 30 April 2019 - Committed to inspire young, curious minds through art, National Gallery Singapore, presents the Gallery Children’s Biennale 2019: Embracing Wonder from 25 May to 29 December 2019. Through 11 interactive and multi-dimensional artworks by 13 Singapore and Southeast Asian artists, this year’s Gallery Children’s Biennale aims to spark curiosity in our young visitors about the world around them, encourage openness to discover diversity, and imagine new possibilities.
Expanding on the theme of ‘Embracing Wonder’, this edition of Gallery Children's Biennale goes beyond imaginative play to unfold new layers of discovery through art that articulates the power of acceptance, belonging and openness. Inspired by a child’s unfettered imagination and ability to embrace all things new, the works will activate their senses and reignite their sense of curiosity, excitement and wonder.
“The Gallery strongly believes that art plays a huge role in the development of our future generations. Art is a place for children to learn about themselves, trust their ideas, and explore what is possible, all of which are important in enabling children to become confident, independent thinkers. Hence, we are always looking at innovative ways to engage with young learners to nurture an early interest in art by showcasing how it can be fun, inspirational and educational. Through the Gallery Children’s Biennale, we hope to create a platform where younger visitors together with their parents, can come together and be inspired by what art has to offer,” said Ms Suenne Megan Tan, Director, Audience Development & Engagement, National Gallery Singapore.
