National Gallery Singapore - Gallery Gala 2018


Held once every two years, the Gallery Gala is National Gallery Singapore’s main fundraising benefit and an opportunity for like-minded individuals, artists, collectors and patrons to come together for an evening of wonderful conversation and art appreciation. This year’s gala will be held on 8 November at the beautifully-restored Supreme Court Terrace, and will be graced by Guest-of-Honor, Minister for Education, Mr Ong Ye Kung.

The theme takes inspiration from the Gallery’s upcoming special exhibition Minimalism: Space. Light. Object., and guests can expect a sneak peek of two installations from the exhibition. The evening’s menu features canapes specially crafted by Gallery&Co., a bespoke three-course dinner curated by Chef Julien Royer from Odette and dessert from National Kitchen by Violet Oon, capped off with cocktails at an afterparty at Smoke & Mirrors. Guests will be treated to entertainment by mezzo-soprano Seia Lee, and have the chance to bid on over 40 artworks, artist-paired dinner experiences and community sessions in a silent auction, and an exciting live auction conducted by Christie’s at the Gala. All funds raised from the evening will go towards the Gallery’s curatorial research, community and education programmes, and presenting its collection to the world through boundary-breaking exhibitions.
