Contemporary Art Exhibitions
Synopsis

The Singapore Art Museum (SAM) advocates and presents the contemporary art of Singapore and the Southeast Asian region. Opened in January 1996 as a museum under the National Heritage Board of Singapore, SAM is housed in a restored 19th century mission school and has amassed one of the world's largest public collection of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian artworks.  The museum's extension building, SAM at 8Q, was opened in August 2008, expanding the museum's gallery space for fresh, multi-disciplinary, interactive and community-oriented programming.

Since 2009, SAM focussed its programming and collections development initiatives around contemporary Southeast Asian art and art practices.  The museum works closely with artists, draws from its collection and collaborates with leading international museums to present shows covering both local and international art practices, as well as cutting edge art expressions. The contemporary art of the region is given international exposure through the museum's travelling exhibitions programme and collection loans.

Through its exhibitions, educational and multi-disciplinary programming, audiences experience and understand contemporary Asia at SAM.  The museum facilitates education, exchange, research and development of contemporary art within the region and internationally.

By fostering artists, growing new audiences, and creating collaborative opportunities between arts organisations and practitioners, the Museum develops a diverse, thriving art environment that engages with the most urgent social and cultural transformations of our time and of the region.

SAM is also the organiser of the Singapore Biennale.

How much do you know about the planet we inhabit? The Singapore Art Museum welcomes you back to the 7th edition of our family-focused exhibition Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth. Through the eyes of nine contemporary artists, this year’s Imaginarium takes a closer look at our surroundings and the environments we reside in.Over millennia, humankind has made vast progress in charting the lands we inhabit: globalisation and technology have meant that distant locations and far-flung communities are now easier to connect with. Yet, how much do we really know of what constitutes the Earth’s wonderful terrains? Consider as welll how the practices of cultures are inextricably tied to the places they inhabit, and people – either by choice or necessity -- adapt to ever-changing environments. Similarly, a locale’s plants and animals have also evolved unique traits to adapt to their habitats.There remains much more to learn about earth’s magnificent marvels, with the closest adventure a possible stone's throw away!
