Gallery & Co. seeks to democratise art and design through collaborations with Singaporean and international brands, artists and designers. The Artist Project invites a diverse mix of creative talents across the fields of art, graphic design and illustration to craft a visual response to a given theme.
“Siapa Nama Kamu?” or, “What is your name?” in Malay, is the title of the inaugural exhibition at the DBS Singapore Gallery. As the history of art in Singapore moves towards the future, it becomes clear that this story is hardly finished.
The products in this first exclusive capsule collaboration are usable and wearable forms of art created by artists and designers as a contemporary take on what Singapore means to them.
