Did you know that the Gallery publishes their own books too? The Gallery publishes books on the visual art of Singapore and Southeast Asia. These range from children's books, to exhibition catalogues to research titles!
Our titles are available at the museum shop, selected bookstores in Singapore and on Amazon.com.
Featured book: Artsy: Fun with Southeast Asian Art

Inspired by artworks from Singapore’s National Collection, this fun activity book encourages young curious minds to observe and explore the world around them. Artsy: Fun with Southeast Asian Art introduces children to simple visual elements like line, shape and colour while stimulating creative expression.

Can you really say there is “Southeast Asian art”?
Hear from the Director at the Gallery, Dr Eugene Tan in this article with CoBo Social.

Latiff Mohidin. Pagoda I, Pago-Pago Series. 1964. Oil on canvas. Collection of National Gallery Singapore. This work has been adopted by BinjaiTree in memory of Chia Yew Kay and Tan Kim Siew.

Raw Canvas by Jane Lee comprises of 40 square panels of densely worked silicone-incorporated acrylic and enamel paint. They appear seamlessly like a piece of canvas draped over the wall.
Lee obsessively applied crisscrossing strands of paint as if she were weaving a textile piece with weft and warp threads. In this way, the artist blurs the perceptual boundaries between fabric and paint.

This monumental painting installation was commissioned for the 2008 Singapore Biennale by the National Arts Council.
Ten years later, it has been reinstalled in its original location—the City Hall historical staircase. The installation was shown in 2009 at the Vilnius Contemporary Art Centre in Lithuania, and in 2011 for Collectors’ Stage at the Singapore Art Museum.

View this artwork today at the City Hall historical staircase on Level 4 at National Gallery Singapore.

We're constantly trying to innovate and integrate technology into the museum. How do we do that?
Find out from Kevin Lim, our Deputy Director for Co:LabX, the innovation lab at the Gallery. He was recently on ChannelNewsAsia's The Big Questions (Episode 1). The episode talks about Internet of Things, among which is the innovation work Co:LabX does at National Gallery Singapore. Together with Accenture, we've used iBeacons for indoor navigation, and even as part of an art intervention augmenting physical space, called Unrealized.
