Established in 2000, Sundaram Tagore Gallery is devoted to examining the exchange of ideas between Western and non-Western cultures. We focus on developing exhibitions and hosting not-for-profit events that encourage spiritual, social and aesthetic dialogues. In a world where communication is instant and cultures are colliding and melding as never before, our goal is to provide venues for art that transcend boundaries of all sorts. With alliances across the globe, our interest in cross-cultural exchange extends beyond the visual arts into many other disciplines, including poetry, literature, performance art, film and music.

DIRECTOR’S PROFILE
Sundaram Tagore was the first gallerist to focus exclusively on globalization by assembling a roster of artists from around the world. He is devoted to examining the exchange of ideas between Western and non-Western cultures. He has pioneered cross-cultural exchange in the contemporary arts by mounting exhibitions and hosting not-for-profit events that encourage spiritual, social and aesthetic dialogues. A descendant of the influential Indian poet and Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore, he promotes EastWest dialogue through contributions to numerous exhibitions as well as his eponymous galleries and their multicultural and multidisciplinary events. Having done his doctoral work at The University of Oxford, Tagore writes for numerous art publications. He was previously a director at Pace Wildenstein Gallery in New York and has advised and worked with many international organizations including The Peggy Guggenheim Foundation, Venice, Italy; the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the United Nations. In addition to running five galleries, Tagore is also a filmmaker. His award-winning documentary The Poetics of Color: Natvar Bhavsar, An Artist’s Journey premiered at New York’s MIAAC Film Festival in 2010.

GILLMAN BARRACKS
Gillman Barracks is Asia’s up-and-coming destination for contemporary art. It will be distinguished as a vibrant center in Asia for the creation, exhibition and discussion of contemporary art. Named after British general Sir Webb Gillman, Gillman Barracks is set amid lush greenery and was once a stronghold to the First Battalion of the Middlesex Regiment. The conserved colonial barracks will house galleries and creative businesses, as well as the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Singapore. The international galleries will feature diverse and everchanging contemporary art exhibitions, while CCA Singapore will bolster the region’s visual arts landscape through its international artist residency, research and exhibition programs. By fostering cultural exchange and creation, showcasing the best and most innovative art of our times, as well as generating discourse and research, CCA Singapore will establish Singapore as an important center for contemporary art in Asia.
