‘On Sharks and Humanity’ is a thematic, travelling exhibition that has previously shown in Monaco in 2014, and in Moscow and Beijing in 2015. Showcasing the works of artists from countries such as Singapore, Germany and the United States, the exhibition relates the stories of the practice of shark finning and the resulting impact on the oceans, and efforts in shark protection and marine conservation.


Located on the third floor of Parkview Square, the museum spans an impressive 15,000 square feet. The Parkview Group previously opened its first museum in Beijing in 2014, and the Parkview Museum Singapore will follow its predecessor’s footsteps with the aim of enriching the local arts scene and promoting contemporary art in Singapore.
