Inspired by a child’s innocence, the artworks aim to activate visitors senses

The second edition of Gallery Children’s Biennale 2019 invites the visitor to experience a new dimension of creativity opening up to wondrous surprises. Committed to inspire young, curious minds through art, this edition will feature 11 interactive and multi-dimensional artworks by 13 Singapore and Southeast Asian artists, aiming to spark curiosity in our young visitors about the world around them, encourage openness to discover diversity, and imagine new possibilities.

For this year’s theme of ‘Embracing Wonder’, the Gallery has chosen to highlight the power of imaginative play to use art as a means to articulate the power of acceptance, belonging and openness. One is then encouraged to rely on one’s own imagination and the innocence of a child to learn to once again embrace all things new, with works to activate and reignite our sense of curiosity, excitement and wonder.

Hands-on activities involve composing your own tunes, braiding giant tresses, popping into a dome, walk across a bridge and peer down into the cosmos, throw balls at metal tubes to make music, or explore a lush garden made of paper cut-outs.
