Benedict Yu's internship experienced in National Gallery Singapore has been featured in Praxis Press, Lasalle College of the Arts.
"...The National Gallery Singapore gave another student the opportunity to not only work with children, but also to engage in research for an upcoming exhibition. This gave him the chance to gain insights into curatorial research skills and understand the way a museum or gallery functions. He assisted primarily at the Keppel Centre for Art Education where he also guided the tours for children and families. His biggest challenge was in speaking in front of large crowds and finding various ways to reach out and engage people of all age groups. He especially enjoyed the research part of his internship where he gained insight into the variety of methods for sourcing information. This opportunity ignited his curiosity pertaining to the structure and functionality adopted by other museums and galleries."
