- Media OutReach - 18 September 2019 - A free guided heritage and art
tour for Gelam Gallery conducted by Monster Day Tours will be available
to locals and tourists for sign up in the weekends of September and October
2019. The tour will bring you on a walk
through Kampong Gelam to soak in the rich culture and history of the place and
also experience an exclusive guided tour of the Gelam Gallery.
The Gelam Gallery made its
debut last month at the back lanes of Kampong Gelam (also known as Kampong Glam) featuring an
international eclectic mix of artists' art pieces from Singapore, Malaysia,
China, Myanmar, France and UK from professionals to graduates from LaSALLE
College of the Arts, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and also some self-taught
artists from various professional backgrounds.
Located along two Muscat Streets,
the back lanes were converted from a dirty bin storage area to a cool outdoor
gallery for both locals and tourists.
A project spearheaded by Color
Inc Pte Ltd, supported by the Singapore Tourism Board and One Kampong Gelam,
the gallery features artworks of 30 artists, a mixture of contemporary art as
well as art pieces which reflects the culture and heritage of the precinct and
the artists' reflection on the present, past and future. There will be framed
artworks complimented by huge murals and graffiti. Each art piece will come
with a description of the artwork and also the background of the artist.
