SAM at 8Q - which stands for Singapore Art Museum - is the extension of the Museum’s main building, named so because of its location on 8 Queen Street. The experimental art gallery is located 88 steps away from the main building, adding to its quirky charm. The youngest annex of the Art Museum, SAM at 8Q houses the most diverse and unconventional art exhibits – the contemporary paintings, sculptures, photographs, performance art, sound art, and other new media interactive exhibits here are a favourite among art connoisseurs, the hip crowd, and tourists alike.
Built atop the former ground of Singapore’s Catholic High School, this four-storeyed building boasts of six galleries full of art pieces by some of the world’s most promising contemporary experimental artists, set up through temporary exhibitions. The annual installation series called Imaginarium returns every year with hip new themes that are bound to get patrons excited. SAM at 8Q also has two restaurants to grab a quick bite while appreciating the stunning art around. 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.
