Since the 1990s, Singapore has steadily grown its reputation as a premier destination for contemporary art. The city is now home to a plethora of innovative art spaces and the state’s new art hub, Gillman Barracks, where a number of contemporary galleries stand. We profile ten of the best contemporary art galleries in Singapore.
Located in Singapore’s contemporary art hub Gillman Barracks – a 6.4 hectare former military camp, now home to myriad contemporary art galleries – ARNDT Singapore has been owned and run by German art dealer Matthias Arndt since 2013. It was formed following the success of sister gallery ARNDT Berlin’s frequent exhibitions in Asia. Presenting a program of solo exhibitions and curated group shows featuring Asian and international art, ARNDT works to raise the profile of both established and emerging artists with notable exhibitions including works by Filipino painter Rodel Tapaya, and Italian-British collaborative duo Gilbert and George.
