This gallery at the Kwek Hong Png Wing is dedicated to contemporary art that is specifically designed for the space. Each work will draw inspiration from the museum’s collection, and inspire new ways of seeing. We hope that contemporary art can inspire contemplation of how we might share ideas, tastes, and concerns with cultures from a different era or locality.
Grains of Thought, by Singaporean artist Eng Tow, is the first commission for the new space. Floating forms with layers of tones are based on the form of a humble grain of rice, a crop grown throughout Asia.
