National Gallery Singapore is located around Civic District. It’s a huge gallery, with 6 levels in total. 🏛All admission is free to local students, and general admission is free to Singaporean/PR. So as a local student👩🎓, you couldn’t miss the great opportunity.
First of all, it is a very beautiful white building, a great place for taking pictures. 📷There are some special exhibitions, such as recent exhibitions by artists such as Wu Guanzhong and Chua Mia Tee. 🎨There are also some fixed ones, such as exhibitions about the history of Singapore’s founding. There are even some children's exhibitions. The venue is very large and contains a lot of content. It is recommended to leave at least 1.5 hours for a good stroll.
Besides, there’re some great restaurants in it such as Smoke & Mirror, National Kitchen by Violet Oon. 🍹 And the uncles and aunties in the gallery are all super warm-hearted. It’s truly a great place. Don’t miss it.
Located in two buildings, the former Supreme Court and the former City Hall, the National Gallery Singapore presents a collection of modern art by artists across Southeast Asia. The gallery showcases the works of both up-and-coming and established artists from the region. Be sure to visit the newly opened galleries showcasing Chinese Ink Art, and don’t miss the rooftop sculpture garden featuring works by Vietnamese-born Danish artist Danh Vo.
Don’t miss a visit to the
Singapore National Gallery, one of the most artistic places in all Southeast
Asia. The National Gallery was one of the region’s first art museums built to
conform to international standards, right down to the Greek monastery-style
architecture. Make sure you visit the glass room, which overlooks the Rotunda
dome. Preparation: Check the list of rotating exhibitions and find a time to
visit when you will see something you enjoy. Tips: Grab one of the
introductory guides for more information on what you are seeing. Stroll along
the walkway linking the Supreme Court Terrace to the Glass Room. Make sure
you budget a decent amount of time as the National Gallery is quite large.
Each floor features various works from across Singapore and broader Southeast
Asia. When you visit, also consider stopping at Fort Canning Park, the Old
Hill Street Police Station, Clarke Quay, Merlion Park, or St. Andrew’s
Church. If you’re looking for one of the freshest art museums in Southeast
Asia, don’t pass up an opportunity to visit the Singapore National Gallery.
It's our first visit to the National Gallery Singapore after its official opening late last year. The visual arts institution is housed in two national monuments - former Supreme Court and City Hall - that have been beautifully restored and transformed. The Gallery now oversees the largest public collection of modern art in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
Some artwork seems easier to relate while others look rather profound to me. Art have many facets and perspective depending on how you look at it.
There's definitely so much more at National Gallery Singapore that we were not able to cover within the short span of few hours. Hope to be back again soon.
