On the eve of Singapore Biennale 2013, ARTINFO has selected ten satellite shows worth seeing in the city-state.
Southeast Asian contemporary art is at the heart of the 2013 Singapore Biennale, with 90 percent of this year’s artists coming from the region. But the Biennale is not the only place to see noteworthy art from Southeast Asia and beyond, says ARTINFO, with commercial galleries hosting a range of contemporaneous satellite shows.
