8Q SAM, Singapore Overview

The Singapore Art Museum (SAM) at 8Q is the more diverse and young annex of the Singapore Art Museum. The 8Q SAM museum derives its name from its location on No.8 Queen Street near Bras Basah Road. Approximately 88 steps away from the Singapore Art Museum, the 8Q gives immense importance to contemporary art and all its intricate forms and is the seat of experimental art in Singapore. Built atop an old Catholic high school, but still clutching its spirited vibe, the modern four-story museum provides a refreshing new perspective on all things art.

8Q SAM houses six contemporary art galleries along with a special children's gallery and several experimental art spaces. The exhibits at the galleries are displayed in various engaging forms including paintings, sculptures, films, photography, sound art and new media. This gives the gallery a unique and hypnotic atmosphere filled with wonder. SAM at 8Q is also strategically placed in the hub of art and culture and alongside major performing arts and visual arts academies such as the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Stamford Arts Centre, and many more. The building also hosts two diners to quench your hunger- The Standing Sushi Bar and The Love Pal Cafe.

Note: The Singapore Art Museum's Buildings (located at Bras Basah Road and Queen Street) are closed for renovation from 2019.
