Go Mad for SAM! Singapore Art Museum (SAM)’s buildings, the former St Joseph’s Institution building and the former Catholic High School building, will be officially closed by the end of February 2019, to make way for renovation works to begin. So for one weekend SAM’s buildings will go bare and open to the public! Expect multimedia, immersive and insta-worthy activities on every level of SAM at 8Q, and Mad for SAM souvenirs to take home. Starting at 10am on Saturday 16 February, the party will go into the night with DJs and homegrown band performances. Iconic artworks like WALTER by Dawn Ng and Night Watch by WOKrea will be on display at SAM at 8Q from Friday 8 February onwards.
During its building closure, SAM will continue its programmes off-site, launching the SAM Mini Mobile Museum initiative with regional libraries in Tampines, Jurong and Woodlands. SAM will also be commissioning artists to create artworks for the hoardings that will go up around its closed buildings during the revamp.
