Singapore Biennale 2022 on Sentosa, Lazarus, and St. John Islands

If you’re a design and furniture fan, you might like this one – Singapore Biennale 2022 (SB2022) is back from Oct 16, 2022 through Mar 19, 2023 across various locations.

This year, the Biennale has a name. Natasha is Singapore Biennale 2022’s official name.

This year, SB2022 is less of a mega-thematic exhibition and more a collective engagement with the ways that art, and that which is considered other to art, relate to life.

It comprises a myriad of exhibitions, but we’re most curious about the six artworks on Sentosa Cove, Lazarus Island and St. John Island, which will make a great day trip.

Most Natasha exhibitions are free admission, except those at Tanjong Pagar Distripark.
