Children's Biennale - Let's Make A Better Place

In its 4th edition, this year's Biennale showcases 11 interactive and immersive artworks, all responding to the theme of “Let’s Make A Better Place.” These engaging artworks encourage both children and adults to explore the core values of Care, Collaborate, Imagine, and Respect, as we collectively work towards building a better world.

The Gallery Children's Biennale remains committed to offering families an immersive experience that sparks open communication, creativity, and reflection about the future. It aims to inspire children to actively contribute to shaping a better world for themselves and others.

Our Favourite Artworks 

A Curious Connection, created for Gallery Children’s Biennale 2023: Let’s Make a Better Place. Image credit: National Gallery Singapore.

Combining the online and on-site experience, "A Curious Connection" provides a unique and interactive way for families to collaborate with anyone in the world! The experience is like playing "Win, Lose, or Draw" where the online player is presented with an untitled artwork from the Gallery’s collection and is challenged to imagine a title for it using four words, and the on-site player must then use the title provided by the first player as inspiration to draw their own artwork.

For younger ones, they will simply enjoy doodling while older ones may better appreciate the humour / absurdness when the actual title is revealed.

Over at Level 1 at the City Hall Wing is SAMA-SAMA (TOGETHER). Emphasising on the core value of Collaborate, parents can work together with your children to build your very own blanket forts and have a fun time creating shared memories! 

We really appreciate the free form play and how it is suitable for younger ones, including toddlers too. Families with younger kids can expect lots of fun here! 

We Move This City by Chiang Yu Xiang. Fabric, foam, video and vinyl. 2023. Created for Gallery Children’s Biennale 2023: Let’s Make a Better Place. Image credit: National Gallery Singapore

And finally, we love the colours and visuals at We Move This City, also at Level 1 of the City Hall Wing. The work is inspired by people being on the move–on the road and public transport—and even features its very own MRT cabin. Here, little ones are encouraged to use their Imagination to create their own vehicles using the soft tetris blocks available! Is it a car? A plane? Or even a car-plane - you can let them decide! 

This is also where parents can capture really pretty pictures while playing with your little ones!
