Sundaram Tagore Gallery, Singapore Overview

The Sundaram Tagore Gallery is a modernist contemporary art gallery located in the Gillman Barracks near Labrador Park. Founded in 2000 in New York, the gallery looks to explore the contrast and interactions between different cultures of the world with its interactive, post-modern exhibitions. The gallery in the Lion City specializes in Southeast Asian artists and their heritage. This venue is frequented by Singapore’s elite connoisseurs of art, history buffs, students, and curious tourists alike.

Curated by the world-famous Sundaram Tagore – art historian and filmmaker extraordinaire who is descendant of Nobel Prize-winning poet Rabindranath Tagore, this gallery looks into the East-West dynamics of today’s world and its many ramifications. The colonial architecture of the Barracks engages the visitors vividly, allowing them to fully appreciate the depth and meaning behind the pieces on display. With worldwide collaborations and cultural exchanges, the gallery hopes to provide a space to transcend boundaries and freely discuss ideas. With past exhibitions featuring artists like Poklong Anading, Nona Garcia, MM Yu, Golnaz Fathi, and Sohan Qadri, and a current exhibition titled ‘Migrations’ by American/British photographer Karen Knorr, Sundaram Tagore Gallery offers a lasting, powerful message to visitors, and puts Singapore on the worldwide art map.
