To commemorate Singapore’s 50th anniversary of independence in 2015, the National Museum of Singapore (NMS) is organising an open call for all Singapore artists for a site specific commission.

Based on the theme The RED Dot: Today and Tomorrow, the commissioned artwork is intended for the open lawn beside the Canning Entrance of NMS, and it should take into consideration the three following aspects:
