Past. Future. Present. Auction Benefiting National Gallery Singapore

Phillips Auction

Phillips is proud to be the official auction partner of National Gallery Singapore’s 2022 Gallery Benefit.


Since opening in 2015, National Gallery Singapore has established itself as one of Asia’s premier cultural institutions, housing the world’s largest public collection of Singaporean and Southeast Asian modern art. Phillips is proud to support the museum in its upcoming 2022 Gallery Benefit.

The event is National Gallery Singapore’s main fundraising benefit and brings together a community of like-minded artists, individuals, collectors and patrons for an evening of lively discussion and art appreciation. The highlight of the evening is the Charity Auction, with 13 lots from a diverse group of artists working across the globe, particularly Southeast Asia. Running alongside the Charity Auction is an online sale of 47 lots, which runs from January 10-20.


Proceeds will support the museum’s vision of fostering and inspiring a thoughtful, creative and inclusive society. Patrons can select among individualized pillars of support to dedicate their donations to, including Community and Access, Curatorial Research and Education.


The theme of this year’s benefit is “Past. Future. Present.”, which encourages attendees to reflect on their relationship with technology as well as its effects and repercussions on society. In line with this theme, we’ve selected works from the sale that reflect on our shared past, interrogate contemporary issues of the present and offer bold visions for the future.
