Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris
Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris takes a high place on the hilltop of historic Fort Canning Park (at the Fort Canning Centre), marking the first foray outside of Europe for the private museum of the arts.
A pleasant trip up the hill, it is housed in an artfully restored former British military barracks, not too far from other major museums and attractions. It is mainly segregated into the following galleries:
Singapore’s First Museum to showcase permanent collection of Old Master’s. Currently under major revamp.
PRESSIONISM: GRAFFITI MASTERPIECES ON CANVAS
23 JANUARY - 25 JUNE 2016
Discover the contrary and delve into this world of colour and calligraphy.
In squeaky clean, prim and proper Singapore, one would frown on unbridled Graffiti, and might even warrant a fine. Here, a global collection of graffiti on canvas celebrates the freedom of expression, on a 4X3 canvas at least.
A walk through of the exhibition gives an understanding of the role Singapore played in the convergence of the various cultures and histories of the region. Expertly curated by Indonesian antique arts, Bruce Carpenter, the historical relics and artefacts on display offer a whirlwind visual tale of Singapore and the region from the Neolithic period to the arrival of Hindu-Buddhism, Sufi Islam and the Peranakan Chinese.
*Free entry to this segment of the gallery. Opened daily.
