By definition, “vernacular” refers to the language or dialect spoken by the people of a country or region; and often indicates a person's mother tongue that is learnt as a first language. VERNACULA_ showcases artworks that bring out the typical Singapore perspective.

VERNACULA_ is commissioned for SG50, organised jointly by the Fine Art and Design & Media programmes.
