On 29 April 2023, SAM launched the public art trail Port/raits of Tanjong Pagar: Encounters with Art in the Neighbourhood under the public art initiative The Everyday Museum. Across the public spaces between Outram Park MRT and SAM’s present location at Tanjong Pagar Distripark, the commissioning series showcases the dramatic transformations of the district over the decades, through a series of public artworks by six artists and collectives: Aki Hassan, Divaagar, Space Objekt, Grace Tan, Zen Teh and Isabella Teng.

Venture out with the Public Art team to encounter these public artworks as further insight is rendered into all the effort taken to bring these commissions to fruition. Learn about how public art provides the space to reflect on how we view the world and spark curiosity, imagination and conversations to transform everyday experiences into memorable encounters.
