What do sharks, ocean conservation and contemporary art have in common?

New contemporary art museum Parkview Museum officially launches with an exhibition that tackles the importance of shark protection and ocean conservation.

Art lovers in Singapore will have a new destination to visit, with the opening of a new contemporary art museum in Parkview Square. The Parkview Museum is a private museum that’s open to the public,  and occupies 1,400 square meters of column-free space on the third floor of the iconic art deco building.

This new museum was established with the vision of strengthening the appreciation of contemporary art in Singapore’s thriving art scene. It plans to do this by bringing together artists from different parts of the world through solo and thematic exhibitions.

The opening exhibition at Parkview Museum is ‘On Sharks & Humanity’, a travelling global exhibition that addresses the topics of ocean conservation and shark protection. A total of 33 works from 29 artists are on display in this multifaceted, multidisciplinary exhibition, ranging from large scale installations to photography to videography.


‘On Sharks & Humanity’ brings together artists from Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Germany and the United States, all coming together to tackle environmental issues that affect the global population. The artworks explore and analyse the interdependent relationship between sharks, the ocean and human beings, challenging  prevailing prejudices and highlighting the importance of sharks in the marine ecosystem.

‘On Sharks & Humanity’ is on exhibit until 9 September 2017.
