52th Venice Biennial, 2007 is a National presentation of the collections by artists like Vincet Leow, Jason Lim,Tang Dawu, and Zulkifle Mahmod. The theme revolves round figments, fictions, and fantasies.
It is all about to explore myth, illusion and imagination of the four artists and their concepts of art that reflect their notion of the carnivalesque in Venice.
It promoted the theme "belief". The artists are torned between the questions whether there is any value of "belief" in modern uncertain world which is devoid of moral sense and where every act is almost a "mindless act" of "soulless automatas".Singapore being a multi- cultural society oscillates between extremes of values and at this context nothing can be more apt theme for the city other than faith in belief or crisis of values or a hope of revival by some optimist artists.
Telah Terbit is another prominent art exhibition of Singapore that took its material from the archive of 70s of Singapore Art Museum.
