Ute Meta Bauer is part of the artistic team for the Singapore Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia

Established in 1895, the Biennale Arte is the most established international contemporary art event and widely regarded as the most significant.

Singapore has been participating at the International Art Exhibition since 2001. Following a review in 2013, Singapore returned to the platform with a dedicated Singapore Pavilion sited at the newly-restored space in the Sale d’Armi building at the Arsenale, Venice, Italy. This is the first time that the Singapore Pavilion has secured a historic Arsenale site on a long term lease for twenty years.
