Last week I read a blog asking the question “should kids be allowed in galleries?” because someone had let their 5 year old climb all over an expensive exhibit. As you probably have already guessed my answer was quick and easy “YES IT’S THE PARENTS’ FAULT!”
I had already been planning on taking the girls to a museum but had not been able to find one with a kids exhibition. This was just the reminder that I needed that there doesn’t have to be a kids exhibition they can like “adult” stuff too. I don’t mean naughty adult stuff just “serious” stuff.
So I took the girls to the SAM this Saturday, unfortunately all but 2 galleries are closed as they setup for a new exhibition. Perhaps I should have done some more research than “is there a kids exhibition on?” A real shame as it was nearly all fairly serious pictures with only a couple of statues that they didn’t really buy into. I liked the concept of the gallery that had all unnamed pieces and invited you to come up with names that I should have probably played with the girls. At 2 and 4 I thought they would have struggled with coming up with names for several pictures that were black blocks on a dark background, but you don’t know if you don’t try.
Anyway BLUEBALU has posted a nice blog where she explains why SAM is her favourite place in Singapore, so don’t be put off visiting just check out what’s on better than I did……
