Now that the National Gallery Singapore is finally open, we are officially home to the world’s largest collection of Singapore and Southeast Asian art. How’s that for a tiny red dot on the map? With plenty of museums—Singapore Art Museum, Gillman Barracks, Asian Civilisations Museum, Peranakan Museum, and the Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris, just to name a few—available, there’s no shortage of venues for you discerning people out there.

And let’s not forget premier art events like Singapore Art Week, Affordable Art Fair, and Art After Dark that have caught eyes all around the world.
