Walking through the halls of art galleries have almost become nostalgic. While we wait patiently for the day we get to explore the museums across Singapore and the region, there are various virtual museum tours and exhibitions you can keep yourself occupied with.
Closer to home, National Gallery Singapore has just launched an online platform for art lovers amidst the 'circuit breaker'. Called #GalleryAnywhere, it is the Gallery's one-stop access to an array of rich digital and virtual experiences to keep art lovers engaged and entertained with art. The portal offers five distinct segments: Browse, Watch, Listen, Play, Explore – each replicating the different experiences you'd get at the Gallery.
#GalleryAnywhere also features content that allow audiences to connect better with artworks they see in the Gallery. Join artist Chua Soo Bin as he tells you first hand the stories behind three of his photographs in the Truths & Legends exhibition, or listen to musician JJ Lin talk about his masterpiece, Journey of a Yellow Man.
If you want to venture even deeper and gain insights into the mind of the artists, the National Gallery Singapore's Perspectives Magazine features artist interviews, curatorial essays, and offers a peek at the Gallery behind the scenes. Who says your knowledge for art has to remain stagnant while you're staying home? So keep a lookout as the Gallery progressively improves the experience and add in new content every week.
