The Marina Bay Sands has become an iconic element of Singapore’s Skyline but more than just the unique architecture and the high-end shops and restaurants, it is the ArtScience Museum that provides substance to the structure.
Last year we got to see the Harry Potter and the Andy Warhol exhibits. This year, the line-up was just as exciting. In the Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb, we were able to unwrap the 3,000 year-old of Egyptian burial practices and mummification. This was the first time that the 3D presentation and the artifacts were shown and displayed in Southeast Asia. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos.
The 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic also made its Southeast Asian debut at the ArtScience Museum. This exhibit reminded everyone that photographs are meant to tell stories that move us and tell us our place in the world with audio visual presentations that takes you behind the scenes into understanding that one powerful frame. There was so much to learn about photography but also about life from thoughtfully going through each one of the photos. While we will be sharing with you some photos from the exhibit, we know our photos will never give justice to the original work but it will give you an idea why we spent so many hours just staring at them.
Get to know one of the most famous couples in design, Charles and Ray Eames, in Essential Eames: A Herman Miller Exhibition. This one runs until January 5, 2014 so you can still experience the over 100 artefacts of rare and never before seen works and images of this duo if you are due to visit Singapore anytime soon.
