Cheong Soo Pieng: Layer by Layer

April 5 @ 10:00 am - September 29 @ 7:00 pm

City Hall Wing, Level B1, Ngee Ann Kongsi Concourse Gallery, National Gallery Singapore

Admission is Free


Step into the fusion of art and science at National Gallery Singapore’s Cheong Soo Pieng: Layer by Layer, the first of four major exhibitions at the Gallery in 2024, spotlighting Singaporean artists. From 5 April 2024 to 29 September 2024, this groundbreaking showcase featuring over 40 artworks from Cheong Soo Pieng’s artistic career marks Southeast Asia’s first exhibition that delves so thoroughly into the artist’s practice and material research.


Free for all, Layer by Layer invites visitors of all ages to embark on an immersive voyage through Cheong’s creative realm with interactive stations that seek to engage visitors through touch, play, and investigation. Engage with Cheong’s innovative techniques by visiting tactile stations that allow visitors to explore the textures of his artworks. Play with a 3D-printed puzzle, and assume the role of a researcher by conducting investigations with a sliding stereo microscope. Through these fun and engaging hands-on activities, visitors will learn more about what goes into creating fundamental elements of a painting and catch a glimpse into the world of art conservation through material analysis techniques such as infrared photography and x-ray scanning.
