The Singapore Art Museum (SAM) will be undergoing a S$90-million revamp which includes an upgrading of facilities, expanding museum-based learning spaces and creating double volume spaces for large-scale installations or technologically demanding works.
“With this revamp, SAM will be able to showcase a wider range of contemporary art works, including multi-media works. We look forward to our artists creatively maximizing the new spaces with their works, while enhancing the SAM visitor experience for all Singaporeans and other visitors,” says Ms Grace Fu, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth.
SAM will close in 2018 and is expected to re-open in 2021. During the revamp, SAM exhibitions will continue at 8Q on Queen Street as well as other museums, institutions and community spaces.
