Whether you are an artisan or simply culturally inquisitive, National Gallery Singapore is offering a series of rich interactive experiences for you to enjoy as part of their #GalleryAnywhere initiative, providing you with the opportunity to browse their collection of over 4,000 artworks and 7,000 archival materials, watch artists share the stories behind their art or learn how culture, history and the role of museums and art organizations may change after the pandemic.
You can also encourage your children to explore their creative side through games and art-making videos with famous artists as part of Gallery Kids! With downloadable activities and an online gallery to showcase their work, they are sure to be entertained and will also be able to foster their inner artist. Adults can venture deeper into the exhibitions and learn more about what goes on behind-the-scenes at the Gallery through the Perspectives Magazine, an online platform for insights and research at the Gallery including interviews and curatorial essays.
If you wish to browse through the exhibits at National Gallery Singapore without leaving home, Google Arts & Culture has also partnered with the Gallery to provide a virtual look at their vast collection of Singaporean and Southeast Asian modern art. From oil paints to watercolors, you can get a closer look at the artwork as you would see it on display either through Street View or in real size using the Art Projector feature, allowing technology to bring you closer to this beloved cultural institution.
