Singapore project

In 2013, the Singapore government announced the opening of Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris, a dependence of the museum that would bring Old Masters and Modern art exhibitions to the city. The new museum was planned to be located in a “pop-up” space, during renovations to its eventual home, the historic Fort Canning building in the arts district. The museum opened in May 2015 and closed in April the next year, citing "weaker than expected visitorship and other business and financial challenges".
