Named after General Sir Webb Gillman, a well-known officer of the British Army, Gillman Barracks was built in 1936. It was home to army barrack buildings.

During World War II, the Barracks and its surrounding area was one of Singapore’s last battle sites before her fall. Fortunately, the site survived the war when Singapore regained British rule in September 1945. Even after Singapore’s independence, Gillman Barracks was a key site used by the Singapore Armed Forces for the training of national service men.

Following a round of restoration, in September 2012, the Barracks was launched as a cluster of international art galleries and other art-related tenants, giving rise to Singapore’s Contemporary Art Enclave.

International galleries such as Sundaram Tagore Gallery, ARNDT and Mizuma Gallery have set up alongside home grown galleries such as FOST Gallery and Yavuz Gallery. Together, the galleries represent a spectacular array of both established and emerging artists such as Ai Wei Wei, Gilbert & George, Indieguerillas, Yayoi Kusama, Jane Lee, and Sebastiao Salgado. Exhibitions are ever-changing and showcase the depth and variety of contemporary art practices.

Also don’t miss the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Singapore, a research centre that has three intertwining platforms of exhibitions, residencies and research. The NTU CCA Singapore encourages critical discourse and experimental contemporary art practices in Singapore and beyond, and is a must-visit destination within Gillman Barracks.
