Located at 71 Bras Basah Road, Singapore, the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) is the place to preserve and present the history of art and practice of contemporary art of Singapore and Southeast Asia. The museum was inaugurated on January 20, 1996.
It is considered to be the first contemporary visual art museum in Singapore and one of the first art museums to have international standard museum facilities and programs in Southeast Asia.
This museum collaborates with international art museums to organize exhibitions of contemporary art of international stature.
To date, SAM has amassed the world’s largest collection of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian art works with a growing component in international contemporary art, reflecting the activities in the region.
