SINGAPORE: The Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) has appointed a 10-member board of directors to oversee the management of the Singapore Art Museum (SAM).
This is after SAM was corporatised on November 13 and to operate autonomously as a Company Limited by Guarantee.
Chairing the board of directors will be Ms Jane Ittogi, who previously chaired SAM's advisory board.
Other members of SAM's board of directors include:
- Ms Chong Siak Ching, head of the visual arts cluster and chief executive officer of The National Art Gallery
- Dr Winston Ang Wee Kern, partner at BlueDot Consultancy Group
- Mr Kenneth Choe, executive director of Goldman Sachs (Singapore)
- Dr George Quek, chairman of BreadTalk Group Limited
- Mr Suhaimi Sukiyar, chairman of APAD youth development & programmes, Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya (Association of Artists of Various Resources).
- Mr Ronny C T Tan, chief country officer and general manager at Deutsche Bank AG (Singapore branch)
- Mr Wee Teng Wen, managing partner at The Lo & Behold Group
- Ms Audrey Wong, programme leader of MA Arts & Cultural Management at the School of Integrated Studies in LASALLE College of the Arts
- Mr Yeo Whee Jim, director of arts & heritage at the MCCY.
The corporatisation of the SAM is part of MCCY's plan to allow greater autonomy for the development and growth of the visual arts in Singapore.
As a corporatised entity, SAM will form part of the Visual Arts Cluster, which also includes the National Art Gallery, Singapore and Singapore Tyler Print Institute.
The move is intended to give SAM leadership greater leeway in charting out the museum's future direction and focus.
