Geylang Adventures: Lorongs of Wisdom


A Coordinates Project of Singapore Biennale 2019 

Set against opulent skyscrapers and all that glitters in Singapore, this is a journey through its’ contrasting underbelly. Google Geylang and you will find stereotypical adjectives giving clues to its reputation- from multiple mentions of crime to listicles of delicious late night offerings.

With the help of different stakeholders on the ground, Geylang Adventures presents a mixed medium interpretation of the neighbourhood and the changes over the years. From the cleaning up of the streets to overcrowded migrant worker dormitories, be captivated by the shared narratives that emerge through resident lenses. In line with the Singapore Biennale theme of “Every step in the right direction”, may you find your own perspective emerge.

About Singapore Biennale

The Singapore Biennale was established in 2006 as the country’s pre-eminent platform for international dialogue in contemporary art. It presents and reflects the vigour of artistic practices in Singapore and the region within a global context, and fosters productive collaborations and deep engagement with artists, arts organisations, and the international arts community.

The Singapore Biennale cultivates public engagement with contemporary art through a four- month exhibition, and its accompanying public engagement and education programmes that include artist and curator talks and tours, school visits and workshops, and community days. It complements achievements in other areas of arts and culture, collectively enhancing Singapore’s international profile as a vibrant city in which to live, work and play.
The 2006 and 2008 editions of the Biennale were organised by the National Arts Council. The NAC commissioned the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) to organise the 2011, 2013, 2016 and 2019 editions.
