Listening to Architecture: The Gallery's Histories and Transformations

Listening to Architecture: The Gallery's Histories and Transformations

Listening to Architecture traces the journey of the City Hall and former Supreme Court buildings, from the origins of their sites to their dramatic transformation into National Gallery Singapore. Themselves works of art, these iconic monuments are steeped in culture and history. They bore witness to many defining moments in Singapore's journey to nationhood and beyond, before undergoing an ambitious ten-year renovation process that united them as a home for Southeast Asian art.
Spanning two galleries and a walkway, this exhibition is an invitation to consider the evolving architecture of these buildings as a conversation between different generations that develops over time.
