Visit National Gallery Singapore

We visited the Singapore National Gallery to catch three exhibitions.

  1. Century of Light featuring two exhibitions: Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay and Between Worlds: Raden Saleh and Juan Luna
  2. Flowers and People – Dark and Walk.Walk.Walk – Search, Deviate, Reunite by teamLab Japan
  3. The Blue Who Swims All This Way by Betty Susiarjo

National Gallery brought in impressionist masterpieces from Musée d’Orsay, Paris. You need not travel to Paris to see these masterpieces of Impressionism art movement of the nineteenth century. Art pieces brought in from Musée d’Orsay include well-known artists such as Monet, Renoir, Manet, and Cézanne. It is a treat for the eyes.

Alongside this exhibition is Between Worlds: Raden Saleh and Juan Luna. Raden Saleh was from Indonesia and Juan Luna was from the Philippines. They were artists that lived through nineteenth century and were exposed to European arts.

teamLab from Japan is known internationally for interactive digital work. In Walk.Walk.Walk – Search, Deviate, Reunite 2018, one could walk with digital images of people projected onto an interactive wall surface. You could double tap onto any character and the image would turn towards you to face you, like tapping someone on his shoulder in real life.

In The Blue Who Swims All This Way, this art installation by Betty Susiarjo creates an ocean floor space so as visitors can feel and touch the exhibits and be immersed in this underwater environment. This is very suitable for families with young kids, and adults alike.
