Visiting National Gallery Singapore, Part 1

Before the closing of the two iconic historical buildings, the former Supreme Court Building and City Hall, I had the opportunity to visit and explore  its interiors during its open house before it will be close and subject into major renovation to transformed the two iconic buildings into one edifice that will be named National Gallery Singapore. It was then did I focused on to the former Supreme Court building which I have chronicled on my post.

Few months ago I got the chance to visit the National Gallery Singapore. Since it was opened on November 2015 it was only recently that I got to check the gallery up close.

Visiting National Gallery Singapore, Part 2

During my visit, it was only the UOB Southeast Asia gallery that I have explored due to time constraint. I was so engrossed admiring the interiors of the old Supreme Court building and all the paintings on display on the gallery that by the time I came out it was already evening. The UOB Southeast Asia Gallery aptly named Between Declarations and Dreams.

The UOB Southeast Asia Gallery occupied three floors and chronologically presented from the 19th century period to the 1990s. It displays important artworks mostly from the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and the rest of Southeast Asia.
