The Kuandu Biennale 2008 served as the premiere program of the year's Kuandu Art Festival, and was the first biennial exhibition to be held at the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts. A consulting committee made up of prominent local curators and scholars selected ten artists, who then collaborated with a curator or critic of their choice to organize their own solo exhibitions. The artists presented an array of varying observations and interpretations of the theme "Dream" concerning Asian society. The biennale envisaged fulfilling the artists’ dreams to the maximum limit through their works, which can be an experiment of dreams, a window of sub-consciousness, a fantasy of body and soul, a rhapsody by artists, a loss of memories, or even a supernatural interpretation of dreams. This catalogue includes essays by the curators and artist biographies.
