You now have one more reason to visit one of Singapore’s most iconic buildings, Parkview Square, in the Bugis district
Now here’s a piece of news that would make even Bruce Wayne excited. Singapore’s very own ‘Gotham City’ building – or as it’s officially called, Parkview Square – has just opened a contemporary art museum within its ritzy Art Deco premises. Thought this campy architectural wonder couldn’t get any cooler? You thought wrong.
Known simply as Parkview Museum Singapore, the private gallery launches with a strident start, touching on the tenacious topic of shark protection and ocean conservation. Titled “On Sharks & Humanity”, this exhibition displays 33 engaging works from 29 artists, and these run the gamut from installations and paintings, to photography and videography. We also hear that there’ll be interactive activities rolled out in the coming months, suitable for culture vultures of all ages.
Wanna hear the best part? Not only will this exhibition run every day ’til 9 September, it’s absolutely free to enter. We’re sold.
On Sharks & Humanity, Level 3 Parkview Museum Singapore, 600 North Bridge Road, Singapore 188778. This exhibition runs from now ’til 9 September, and is open daily from 1pm to 7pm. Entry is free.
