Chateau Marble Gallery

Providing a space where everyone creates, learns and celebrates

The Marble Gallery room is located at the back entrance of the Chateau, where life and learning at ISB are celebrated through several exhibitions throughout the school year. 

Fragility Exhibition
5-21 June 2019
The 'Fragility' exhibition is now the at ISB Marble Gallery in the Chateau after being displayed in the World bank in February. Students of all ages, from ECC to HS, created their interpretation of fragility on A5 postcards. The installation in the Marble Gallery invites the community to continue the work and create your own postcard representing Fragility using the blank postcards and art materials available in the space. Stop by to create your artwork and add it to the growing wall.

If you have any ideas for an exhibition in the Marble Gallery, please contact us!

The Storytelling

The Storytelling Exhibition
20 March - 24 April 2019
The Storytelling Exhibition highlights the collaboration of work between Elementary and High School students on the art of storytelling. From concept to final product, the exhibit displays 13 exciting stories to listen to (recorded by student author) or read. The protagonist or hero of each story was created by grade 3 and Intensive Learning Support students, while the stories were written by grade 10 students, as part of the ES and HS English Curriculum activities. Each story is complete with illustrations made by the HS students authors, either via drawings or digital tools.  Enter the world of storytelling and jump into these fantastic adventures! 

What happens when 3 graders imagine a character and 10 graders create a story around it?

What Should School Be For?

What Should School Be For?  
7 Feb - 8 Mar 2019

What Should School Be For? Fuelled by the ISB-organised major event -- Learning by Design, this exhibition intends to feature the answers of students, parents, faculty, and school administrators to this simple yet complex question. For the next month a large display will feature these reflections on colourful cards. Do not miss the opportunity to tell us what you think! Pass by the Chateau, and hang your answer! 

Eye on I

"Eye to I" Exhibition
7 Jan - 4 Mar 2019

Self-portraiture continues to stand the test of time in visual art. A seemingly simple task of representing oneself is layered in complexities of how we view ourselves, our physical and emotional state, choice of media and the relationship between ourselves and the viewer. As people are confronted each day with “selfies” via social media and students at ISB are in the process of forming their own sense of identity, we look at how students represent themselves through visual art. The "EYE to I" exhibition features student artwork from ECC through to HS. Some process behind the work is featured alongside finished pieces to reflect and celebrate the ongoing construction of identity and learning.

The Internationalism

The Internationalism Exhibition
7 November - 2 December 2018


Inspired by the International Festival, the Internationalism Exhibit explores how our ISB Community is diverse in its cultural backgrounds, languages, emotions and ways to define “home”. Come and discover this richness through the words and eyes of some of our ISB students, parents and employees, presented with beautiful photo portraits. And what better way to celebrate internationalism by pinning your home on a large world map?


Really Inspiring.
I liked to be able to connect with some of the stories.
