Singtel will support the National Gallery Singapore in presenting internationally renowned artworks alongside significant Southeast Asian art with a S$20 million contribution to the Gallery.
In acknowledging the generous gift from Singtel, the special exhibition galleries located on the third floor of the Gallery will be named the Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery. The space is dedicated to showcasing modern art that is co-curated with renowned museums from around the world.
Ms Chua Sock Koong, Singtel Group CEO said,
“We are very excited to be collaborating with the National Gallery Singapore to present artworks that are rarely seen in Singapore and the region. At the same time, we feel proud to see art from home and Southeast Asia take their place alongside global offerings… Art provokes dialogue and connects people regardless of culture and country.”
Spanning a total floor area of approximately 20,000 square feet, the Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery comprises three areas including a double volume gallery.
The Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery will present two international shows yearly with the inaugural show slated for April 2016. This will be co-curated by Dr Eugene Tan, Director of National Gallery, in partnership with one of the world’s most renowned art museums. Singtel’s gift will enable the Gallery to undertake more of such collaborative exhibitions with other reputable regional and international art institutions.
