Art Deco to Art Now: Singapore
With art specialist Claudia Chan Shaw, discover Singapore’s architectural and artistic gems, from grand Art Deco buildings to cutting-edge contemporary art museums, galleries and private collections during the island state’s annual Singapore Art Week.
Explore this vibrant cultural melting pot in the city’s lively neighbourhoods and laneways, including Art Deco Tiong Bahru, colourful Little India and the fascinating nineteenth-century Muslim enclave of Kampong Glam.
Gain private access to dynamic collections and galleries in Bugis, Kampong and at the elegantly restored Gillman Barracks that hosts the city’s newest arts precinct. Encounter the region’s diverse heritage at the Asian Civilisations Museum and the National Museum of Singapore, and admire Moshe Safdie’s extraordinary design for the ArtScience Museum.
The 2023 Singapore Art Week will exhibit over 100 galleries of Singaporean, regional and international artists, both established and emerging, from the traditional to the contemporary.
This tour is part of the World Art Tours program organised by the Art Gallery Society of NSW in partnership with Renaissance Tours.
