Love art? Then this tour is for you!
Museum Docent, Valerie Brandt, will guide this exclusive, one-hour tour of not one, but TWO, of the new Singapore Art Museum exhibitions. The evening will begin with a wine reception, then Brandt will lead us through the two exhibits, bringing the works to life.
The one-hour tour will include the contemporary works featured in the SAM Learning Gallery show "Once Upon This Island." These pieces reflect on the Singapore's ever-changing issues of identity related to history, language, community and people.
We also will explore the acclaimed SAM exhibition "Five Stars: Art Reflects on Peace, Justice, Equality, Democracy and Progress," a reference to the humanist values represented by the stars on Singapore's flag. The exhibit gives scope to five extraordinary Singaporeans whose artistic expressions offer nuanced and layered interpretations of the nation’s core values.
This is a great opportunity to view Singapore's premier Museum of Contemporary Art and contemplate the complex ideas that underlie life in Singapore today and in the future.
