Singapore Art Museum Contemporary Art Exhibitions

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 2011.
