In conjunction with the opening of the 2008 edition of the Singapore Biennale, the National Arts Council of Singapore - official organisers of the Biennale - together with Fortune Cookie Projects will host the first Showcase Singapore. Twenty-three major international galleries have been invited to exhibit the best work available on the primary and secondary markets from around the world.

Showcase Singapore will open on the same day as the Biennale - 9 September - and will be presented on the ground floor of Old City Hall, the main venue of this years Biennale. Access to all Biennale-related events on 9 and 10 September will be restricted to invited international VIPs. Public opening takes place on 11 September.

The participants in Showcase Singapore represent some of the most exciting work available internationally. The strategic aim of the Showcase is to provide Asian collectors with the opportunity to see major work by internationally-recognised artists and to offer Western collectors and art professionals a platform to experience new cutting-edge work being produced by artists from around the region.

The first Singapore Biennale was held in 2006. Organised by the National Arts Council of Singapore, the curatorial team was led by the internationally renowned Fumio Nanjo. He will again be the chief curator for the 2008 Singapore Biennale, working with co-curators Joselina Cruz and Matthew Ngui.

Together with the Biennale, Fortune Cookie Projects is actively involved in developing a VIP program for international visitors, which will include access to all VIP Biennale and Showcase events. The organisers are also working with collectors and professional art organisations from overseas to make Singapore the main destination for the thousands of visitors who will attend the more than five art biennials and triennials taking place in Asia this September.
