National Gallery Singapore is a visual arts institution which oversees the largest public collection of modern art in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Situated in the heart of the Civic District, the Gallery is housed in two national monuments—City Hall and former Supreme Court—that have been beautifully restored and transformed into this exciting venue.
Reflecting Singapore’s unique heritage and geographical location, the Gallery features Singapore and Southeast Asian art from Singapore’s National Collection in its long-term and special exhibitions. The Gallery also works with international museums to jointly present Southeast Asian art in the global context, positioning Singapore as a regional and international hub for the visual arts.
In 2016, the Gallery won the awards for “Best Attraction Experience”, “Breakthrough Contribution to Tourism” and “Best Customer Service (Attractions)” at the prestigious Singapore Tourism Awards for its role in adding to the vibrancy of Singapore’s tourism landscape.
CIMAM – International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art – is a global network of over half a thousand contemporary art museum professionals. Its vision is a world where the contribution of museums, collections and archives of modern and contemporary art to the cultural, social and economic well-being of society is recognized and respected. CIMAM's Annual Conference is the most important forum for information exchange within modern and contemporary art practice. Its guiding principle is the discussion of questions relating to the running and development of contemporary art museums and collections worldwide followed by visits to the foremost contemporary art institutions, collections and projects in the region. CIMAM is based in Barcelona and its office at Fabra i Coats is supported by The City Council of Barcelona.
