The National Museum of Singapore has announced the launch of its first digital gallery, Channel News Asia reports. Gallery10 will be a permanent space where artists can explore the relationship between art and digital technology. Angelita Teo, director of the National Museum of Singapore, has said: ‘The role of the museum has changed over the years, expanding its focus beyond presenting things of the past to include creating a connection with the present… Gallery10 is a space that provides us with the opportunity to do just that and more, through the adoption of digital and future technology to create an immersive experience for our visitors to engage with history and art.’

The gallery has commissioned multidisciplinary artist Sarah Choo Jing to produce a three channel video installation titled Art of the Rehearsal as part of their permanent collection.
