Two historic buildings – the former Supreme Court and City Hall – have been renovated to form the state-of-the-art National Gallery Singapore. The 64,000m² museum is now the crown jewel of Singapore’s contemporary art scene, housing one of the world’s largest public collections of modern Southeast Asian art. Besides a rotating series of special exhibitions – previous artists on display include Yayoi Kusama, Juan Luna, Danh Vo and Raden Saleh – the museum’s permanent collection features works by local artists such as Chen Chong Swee, Georgette Chen and Cheong Soo Pieng. The gift shop, Gallery & Co, stocks museum memorabilia alongside a curated range of local fashion, stationery and homewares.
