With one of the biggest collections of contemporary art from the region, SAM seeks to create infinite room for everyone to think, experience and be inspired through its exhibitions and programmes.

SAM relies on generous donors for critical funding to create contemporary art exhibitions, education and community programmes that will engage visitors and spark a lifelong interest in art.

About the Charity

The Singapore Art Museum opened its doors in 1996 as the first fully dedicated visual arts museum in Singapore. Since then, we have built one of the world's most important collections of contemporary art by artists from Singapore, Southeast Asia and Asia. We are committed to creating meaningful encounters with art for all our visitors, through our exhibitions, research, publications, public and educational outreach.

In 2019, our two museum sites - the former St. Joseph's Institution building on Bras Basah Road and former Catholic High School building on Queen Street, closed for a building redevelopment. With the aim to create an architectural landmark for contemporary art in Singapore, this major undertaking includes the preservation of the buildings' heritage architecture, thoughtfully blending the old and the new. When SAM re-opens, visitors can look forward to an iconic museum space where the public can experience and engage with art.

During this period, we continue to hold exhibitions and events at partner venues and spaces like the Regional Libraries of Tampines, Woodlands and Jurong. The 2019 edition of the Singapore Biennale will also take place from 22 November 2019 to 22 March 2020 across partner venues. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest information about our building works and museum programming.

The redevelopment is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY), and Tote Board.
