National Gallery’s Singapore-Made Glass Door Shatters in the Face of Foreign Competition

It had tempered glass doors made in Singapore, Malaysia and China.

Unfortunately, it was the Singapore-made one that shattered yesterday (1 Dec) in a surprise break to commemorate a week of the National Gallery’s opening.

The gallery is investigating the incident, which left a man with minor abrasions on his right hand.

The area was cordoned off yesterday as National Gallery staff swept up the debris (and tried to save the gallery some face).

Repair works are in progress, but the public will still be able to access the Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Gallery, Yan and Smoke & Mirrors exhibits.
