  1. Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Edwin Tong will be travelling to Venice from 20 – 22 April 2022 to launch the Singapore Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale. This year marks Singapore’s milestone 10th participation at the Venice Biennale.

  2. The Venice Biennale is one of the most established international platforms for contemporary art in the world. Our milestone reflects Singapore’s commitment to expanding the space for our Singaporean artists to reach a global audience by presenting their works at internationally renowned platforms.
