After the Pinacothèque de Paris, it’s the turn of the National Gallery Singapore to strengthen the artistic and cultural image of Singapore, through this initiative to create a large art gallery, and educate Singaporeans to art.
National Gallery Singapore will oversee the world’s largest public collection of Singapore and Southeast Asian art, consisting of over 8,000 artworks, ranging from the 19th century to present day.
National Gallery Singapore aims to provide an understanding and appreciation of art and culture through a variety of media, focusing on Singapore’s culture and heritage and its relationship with other Southeast Asian cultures, Asia, and the world.
the main objectives are : research, exhibit and promote Southeast Asian artworks ; provide a platform for artistic expression and learning ; facilitate the exchange of knowledge through regional partnerships and collaborations with other institutions ; develop and foster visual arts development in Singapore and Southeast Asia, as well as establish a leading position in the international museums and galleries scene ; inform and educate audiences, through medias and engaging experiences.
