Overseeing 22 student arts performing groups, our commitment is to combine education and artistic expression in developing interdisciplinary collaborations and learning. Collaborative practice has become a key tenet of our programming, evident from the work we have done with students across numerous disciplines and on topics as wide-ranging as biomedical ethics, digital culture, and quantum technologies, including themes of identity, opportunity, and social construct.

Drawing from its collections and curatorial practices, the NUS Museum advances knowledge and appreciation of works and exhibitions through teaching, learning and research. With four compelling permanent collections, ranging from classical and contemporary Chinese art, South and Southeast Asian modern and contemporary art, Singapore sculptor Ng Eng Teng’s body of work, and materials from the Straits Chinese collection, the NUS Museum is an immense teaching resource, encouraging critical thinking and discourse through artwork and object pedagogy.
The Museum has worked with and across a broad spectrum of disciplines from the humanities and social sciences, to engineering and the physical sciences. Examples include the NUS School of Design and Environment, Yale-NUS College and the Departments of Communications and New Media, Geography and Chinese Studies at the NUS Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences.
In addition to facilitating teaching and research, the Museum further engages students through its Internship Programme by providing opportunities for the advancement of research on regional art and culture, as well as departments and academics in seminars and conferences on subjects which interact with art and culture in the region.Get in touch
