Singapore Art Museum

https://www.singaporeartmuseum.sg

The Singapore Art Museum opened its doors in 1996 as the first fully dedicated visual arts museum in Singapore. Since then, we have built one of the world’s most important collections of contemporary art by artists from Singapore, Southeast Asia and Asia. We are committed to creating meaningful encounters with art for all our visitors, through our exhibitions, research, publications, public and educational outreach.

In 2019, our two museum sites – the former St. Joseph’s Institution on Bras Basah Road and Catholic High School on Queen Street  closed for a building redevelopment. With the aim to create an architectural landmark for contemporary art in Singapore, this major undertaking includes the preservation of the buildings’ heritage architecture, thoughtfully blending the old and the new. When SAM re-opens, visitors can look forward to an iconic museum space where the public can experience and engage with art.

During this period, we will continue to hold exhibitions and events at partner venues and spaces like the Regional Libraries of Tampines, Woodlands and Jurong. Please visit www.singaporeartmuseum.sg or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest information about our building works and museum programming.
