The Singapore Art Museum opened its doors in 1996 as the first art museum in Singapore. Also known as SAM, the museum is now a contemporary art museum, focusing on international contemporary art practices. SAM has built one of the world's most important public collections of Southeast Asian contemporary artworks, with a growing component in international contemporary art. SAM draws from its collection and collaborates with international contemporary art museums to co-curate and present contemporary art exhibitions. Contemporary art of the region is also given international exposure through SAM's travelling exhibition programme and collection loans.
In the “Singapore Art Museum” app, there are three tours to explore the museum’s most recent exhibitions: Imaginarium: A Voyage of Big Ideas, After Utopia: Revisiting the Ideal in Asian Contemporary Art, and our Learning Gallery exhibition, Once Upon This Island.
