      Art is a reflection of a region’s history, providing valuable insights into the direction society is headed. This is especially true for National Gallery Singapore, which oversees the world’s largest public collection of modern Singapore and Southeast Asian art — acting as a “melting pot” of art from the region.
       
      Samsung Art Store is an art subscription service that began in 2017 for The Frame, the company’s lifestyle TV. In partnership with more than 50 museums and galleries worldwide, the service provides more than 2,000 pieces of artwork, ranging from famous paintings to unique pieces from emerging artists. Through this service, users can access various works of art in 4K resolution from the comfort of their own homes.
       
      Since April 2022, Samsung Art Store has been partnering with National Gallery Singapore to bring consumers a curated selection of prominent artworks by Singaporean and Southeast Asian artists. A leading visual arts institution, the Gallery is a custodian of over 8,000 works that form Singapore’s National Collection, which capture the changing landscape of this dynamic region.
       
      Samsung Newsroom sat down with Jason Ong, Director, Partnership Development at National Gallery Singapore to discuss how the Gallery and its partnership with Samsung Art Store are redefining the role of art galleries and its role in fostering diversity and accessibility.
       
      ▲ National Gallery Singapore
       
       
      Q: National Gallery Singapore’s partnership with Samsung Art Store is fairly recent, having been announced in April 2022. Can you tell us a bit about the inspiration behind this partnership?
       
      National Gallery Singapore is committed to making our collection more accessible as well as to deepen the public’s engagement with our artworks. Collaboration with like-minded partners, such as Samsung, help us to achieve this goal. We are especially heartened to know that though this partnership, artworks from our collection can reach an international audience in the comforts of their home.
       
      As the first Southeast Asian museum represented in the Art Store, our presence on the Art Store allows us to showcase some of our key artworks to a global audience; we hope that this will enhance awareness and appreciation of our region’s rich art history.
       
      Through technology, visitors are able to have a glimpse of the diversity of art and narratives showcased through the selected artworks. We hope this partnership will ignite more interest not only for works from our collection but also for Singapore and Southeast Asian art in general.
       
       
      Q: Can you tell us more about the Gallery’s goal to foster and inspire a creative and inclusive society? What does this look like?
       
      The Gallery is working towards expanding the hearts, perspectives and horizons of the public through art. We have been steadfast in our ambition to deepen art appreciation in our audiences. Our desire to develop the Gallery as a space for dialogue and discovery also extends to the exhibitions we present. By sharing the magic of storytelling with all, our exhibitions and programs can add to, adapt or remake age-old tales. Our critically acclaimed exhibitions are curated to promote conversations and encourage fresh perspectives on the art of Singapore, Southeast Asia and the world.
       
       
      Q: Samsung Art Store recently updated its selection from the Gallery’s diverse collections to include pieces from renowned artists such as You Khin, John Turnbull Thomson and Raden Saleh. How were these works chosen?
       
      We display a unique transnational approach towards our collection as we aim to rewrite the art histories of this region. The works selected for Samsung — varying in medium, subject matter and social concerns — demonstrate the diversity of art from the region. You will find a wide range of works drawn from various countries in the region from the 19th to 20th century, varying in medium and artistic style.
       
       
      Q: Which three would you recommend for users to display on The Frame?
       
      Kampong Pasir Panjang was painted by Singaporean artist, Idris Ali, in 1965. Idris Ali’s paintings of Singapore are important as they serve as visual documentation of our national heritage. We hope that this painting provides an insight into the local landscape of early post-independence Singapore.
       
       
      ▲ Kampong Pasir Panjang (1965) by Idris Mohd Ali
       
      You Khin’s Untitled (Doha Scene: Pakistani Bakers) records the local Pakistani bakery that Cambodian artist, You Khin often visited with his children during his years in Doha and offers insights into how he passed the time in his adopted home. This painting also demonstrates how other regions of the world are interpreted in Southeast Asia’s modern art through artists who travelled widely like You Khin.
       
      ▲ Untitled (Doha Scene: Pakistani Bakers) (1990) by You Khin
       
      Boschbrand (Forest Fire) is one of the most iconic artworks of the Gallery represented in the Art Store since the inception of the partnership in April. While this piece isn’t one of the latest additions to the Art Store, it is a remarkable artwork with a dramatic representation of wild animals chased by flames to the edge of the precipice. The work was presented as a gift by Indonesian artist Raden Saleh to his patron King Willem III of the Netherlands in 1850. It is monumental in scale; we are glad that this masterpiece can be displayed and appreciated by The Frame owners from the comforts of their homes.
       
      ▲ Boschbrand (Forest Fire) (1849) by Raden Saleh
       
       
      Q: You’ve worked on digital projects ranging from NFTs to the Web3 universe to make art more interactive and accessible. How do you foresee technology bridging the accessibility gap for consumers and artists in the coming years?
       
      We must continue to harness this ability as we press towards the digital realm alongside everyone else. It is not enough to replicate the experience of visiting our galleries. Instead, visitors will have the opportunity to craft their own unique museum experience through modes of online engagement centered on interaction. Through video tutorials, games and livestreams, individuals can query artists; children can make art with their parents; and students can tour our exhibitions with their teachers.
       
      As part of this initiative, the Gallery has recently created a private blockchain for “Adopt Now,” a public crowdfunding initiative that allows anyone to adopt part of an artwork from its art collection for as little as 50 Singapore Dollars. We are thrilled to report that this micro-giving initiative has received an encouraging response.
       
       
      Q: Do you have any other upcoming exhibitions or projects you can tell us about? Do you have plans for any more digital art projects in the future?
       
      As an innovative museum, National Gallery Singapore continues to innovate and explore emerging technologies to see what is possible in creating more opportunities for art appreciation among our visitors. To make art even more accessible, the Gallery launched ARText in September, an interactive platform that lets users learn about Southeast Asian art through daily conversations on common messaging apps.
       
      ARText is built on the concept of micro-learning and delivers bite-size and interactive art learning experiences to mobile devices. The Gallery is also looking at personalizing the experience by integrating artificial intelligence text recognition software.

      In this installment, Samsung Newsroom introduces how to enjoy home gaming with the Samsung Gaming Hub. The Samsung Gaming Hub provides fun gaming experiences for all types of gamers, from aspiring gamers who have to buy new gear to play games when starting out to avid gamers who want to play all sorts of games, including console games and downloadable games.
       
      According to a report from the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) in 2021, there are an estimated 214 million gamers in the U.S. alone, with 75 percent of households having at least one person who plays games. As a result, during the pandemic, gaming became a fun group activity, particularly for those looking to connect with others.
       
      As home gaming continues to become a more popular form of home entertainment, Samsung Electronics is providing new gaming experiences to consumers. Samsung Newsroom introduces the way users can enjoy a more realistic, immersive home gaming experience with Samsung Smart TVs.
       
       
      Take the First Step Towards Unfettered Home Gaming With Samsung Gaming Hub
      The biggest hurdle for many who wish to start at-home gaming is the cost and inconvenience of buying and setting up gaming equipment. Many consoles carry console-exclusive game titles that are only available on one platform. In order to play different games, users have to buy multiple different consoles.
       
      PC games come with a set of obstacles as well. Gamers need to have all the necessary accessories and computer parts, such as a CPU, graphics card and monitor, in order to have a smooth gaming experience. Furthermore, gamers who purchase downloadable games need to ensure they have ample storage space available for the new games to be installed, causing them to delete older games to clear up space on their PC.
       
      Now, gamers can have a complete home gaming experience with Samsung Gaming Hub without having to worry about hardware requirements.
       

       
      No gaming PC, console or additional gaming gear is needed; all you need is a controller to enjoy gaming on a Samsung Smart TV. Moreover, users don’t need to worry about storage space for their games either. Just like watching a TV series or a movie on a streaming platform, all you need to do to start playing is simply select a game title.
       
      On Samsung Gaming Hub, users can access games from various industry-leading partners, including NVIDIA GeForce Now, Google Stadia and Utomik. Additionally, Gaming Hub supports Xbox Game Pass, making it the world’s first Smart TV platform to include the Xbox app. Through this partnership, Samsung Gaming Hub users are now able to stream hundreds of high-quality games including blockbuster titles. Moreover, they can play new games on day one of release from Xbox Games Studios and enjoy iconic franchise games from Bethesda Softworks and more, all without having to buy a console.
       
      Users can also continue playing a game on their tablet or smartphone after they have begun playing it on a Smart TV. By logging in using a cloud service, all saved files from a TV, tablet or smartphone are linked together. This allows users to cross-play games from anywhere in their home regardless of which device they use.1
       
       
      From Taking an Online Trip to Learning How To Code: A Customized Home Gaming Experience
      While winning games is fun, the act of playing a game itself can also be enjoyable. In addition to its collection of popular games, Samsung Gaming Hub offers educational games that are both entertaining and visually captivating.
       

       
      For those who want to take a spontaneous trip somewhere, take a trip to anywhere in the world with Flight Simulator. Flight Simulator is a pilot simulation game that has been loved by many since it was launched in 1982. The game presents users with realistic visuals and detailed background scenery, such as sunsets and city lights. The game also gives users an extremely realistic flying experience, similar to actually flying a plane.
       

       
      For families that enjoy playing games with their kids, keep the fun going with Minecraft. Minecraft is a game in which players freely create their own spaces through mining, farming and hunting in a world made of square blocks. Minecraft: Education Edition is used in classrooms around the world to teach a wide range of subjects including the basics of programming, such as coding and design. With an in-game tutorial, many walkthroughs and online guides available, those who aren’t familiar with playing games can easily learn to play Minecraft. For more family fun, the action-adventure game Minecraft Dungeons enables players to brave the dungeons alone or join up to three other players to battle monsters together and gather treasure in an epic quest.
       

       

       
       
      Your Own Playground Made Complete With Samsung Neo QLED
      One of the most important pieces of equipment for home gaming is the display. The display not only affects how immersive a game is but also the outcome of the game as well.
       
      The Samsung Neo QLED presents the world inside a game with the best picture quality. With 100% color volume and improved, detailed black levels, users can appreciate the beautiful high-resolution graphics and find out where enemies are hiding in the dark.
       

       
      The Neo QLED is equipped with various features that make gaming even more exciting. Specifically, it comes with Motion Xcelerator Turbo Pro technology, which provides crisp gameplay motion in 4K resolution at 144Hz, and FreeSync Premium Pro, which minimizes input latency, lag and stutter on screen. Thanks to these features, gamers can play CPU-intensive games smoothly and enjoy vivid, life-like graphics. From first-person shooter (FPS) games that require fast response times to racing games with fast switches between different screens, the Neo QLED gives gamers an upgraded and immersive gaming experience across all genres.
       

       
      The Neo QLED also provides enhanced display aspect ratios of 21:9 and 32:9, allowing gamers to play on a larger screen rather than on gaming monitors only. The Neo QLED is the first of its kind in the industry to offer Ultrawide GameView. Ultrawide GameView captures game angles that weren’t available with a display aspect ratio of 16:9, allowing users to play games without any blind spots on screen. The Neo QLED also supports Multi View, a feature that allows users to play two different videos simultaneously. With Multi View, users can play a game while referring to a walkthrough at the same time.
       
      Enjoy an upgraded sound experience with the Neo QLED. The Neo QLED comes with Moving Sound Pro+ (OTS Pro+) technology, technology that matches the direction and movement of an object within a video to the sound. By creating multi-dimensional sound, users feel as if they are inside the game itself.
       
      Home entertainment is loved by many because it is the most convenient way to enjoy fun activities from the comfort of one’s home. The next era of home gaming has begun, an era where anyone can play video games as easily as they can watch TV from their homes. A Samsung Smart TV is all that’s needed to enjoy playing games comfortably. Jump into the immersive world of home gaming with Samsung Smart TVs.
