National Gallery Singapore - General Admission
Synopsis

National Gallery Singapore is a new visual arts institution which oversees the largest public collection of modern art in Singapore and Southeast Asia. The Gallery is housed in two national monuments—former Supreme Court and City Hall—that have been beautifully restored and transformed into this exciting venue in the heart of the Civic District.
Reflecting Singapore’s unique heritage and geographical location, the Gallery will feature Singapore and Southeast Asian art in its long-term and special exhibitions. It will also work with leading museums worldwide to co-present Southeast Asian art in a wider context, positioning Singapore as a regional and international hub for the visual arts. 

DBS Gallery presents Siapa Nama Kamu?:  Art in Singapore since the 19th Century
"Siapa Nama Kamu?" means "What is your name?" The inaugural exhibition of the DBS Singapore Gallery poses this question, inviting visitors to consider how art may relate to issues of self and community, and what it means to look at Singapore through its art.
Drawing on close to 400 works, it explores the influences and practices that have shaped and transformed Singapore art. Each artwork provides insights into why and how an artist responded to his surroundings and circumstances. Taken as a whole, the wide range of artworks reflects the complexities involved in telling this extensive story.
 
UOB Southeast Asia Gallery presents Between Declarations and Dreams: Art of Southeast Asia since the 19th Century
If one thing characterises Southeast Asia, it is change. A meeting point for major civilisations, religions and colonial powers, it has experienced a tumultuous social and political history, marked by a complex relationship between local traditions and influences from the West.
Between Declarations and Dreams looks at Southeast Asian art’s continuous encounter with the new, and how artists negotiated meaning and expression as they grappled with change. A powerful exhibition, it displays close to 400 artworks, as well as rare books and artefacts.

National Gallery Singapore - Weaving Workshop with Yee I-Lann, Julitah Kulinting and Roziah Jalalid
Weaving Workshop with Yee I-Lann, Julitah Kulinting and Roziah JalalidSat 30 Nov | 1.30 pm – 4.30pm | Glass RoomTikar-A-Gagah is a new work by artist Yee I-Lann (b. 1971, Malaysia), commissioned by the Gallery for our OUTBOUND series. The giant double-sided mat (or tikar in Malay) is a collaboration between Yee and weavers in Sabah, a northern Borneo state in Malaysia. The front side of the mat is completed by the sea indigenous Bajau Sama DiLaut weavers from Semporna, whilst the reverse side is woven by the land indigenous Dusuns and Muruts of the Keningau district.Try your hand at two of the traditional Bornean weaving techniques used in the making of Tikar-A-Gagah during this entry level workshop, planned in conjunction with the launch of the commission. Participants will learn about screw pine (pandanus) weaving with Bajau weaver Roziah Jalalid, as well as split bamboo weaving with Dusun weaver Julitah Kulinting.This workshop is targeted at beginners. Due to time constraints and the labour-intensive nature of weaving, the workshop will focus on teaching participants on how to start a small weave using the two methods. Participants may need to complete the pieces in their own time after the workshop. This workshop will be carried out in a mix of Bahasa Melayu and English, with local artists including Zarina Muhammad facilitating and translating the session. This event is part of the programming for the OUTBOUND series. For more information please visit: www.nationalgallery.sg/outbound.
