Singapore Art Museum (SAM) hosts one of the world’s largest public collections of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian artworks, with a growing component in international contemporary art. SAM, which now focuses on contemporary art, is housed in a restored 19th century mission school. SAM draws from its collection and collaborates with international contemporary art museums to curate and present contemporary art exhibitions. Contemporary art of the region is also given international exposure through SAM’s travelling exhibition programme and collection loans.
