National Gallery Singapore is home to more than 9,000 artworks across Southeast Asia spanning the 19th century to the present. In fact, the gallery is home to a part of Singapore's National Collection, managed by the National Heritage Board. The collection has borne witness to the changing landscape of art institutions in Singapore, encapsulating their complex histories and contributions made by artists, artists' estates and private individuals through donations.
You can find a large selection of works in two long-term exhibitions, Siapa Nama Kamu? and Between Declarations and Dreams, which showcases the influences and practices that have shaped and transformed Singapore art. Don't miss the works of a pioneer artist at the eponymous Liu Kang Gallery, which commemorates his role in the development of modern art in Singapore.
