The Private Museum (TPM) is pleased to present Emerging: Collecting Singapore Contemporary – Selections from the DUO Collection by the DUO collectors, who have been semi-anonymously collecting the art of Singapore-based emerging artists over the past 5 years.
Held alongside Singapore Art Week 2020, the exhibition will showcase 20 artworks from16 emerging artists. As part of TPM’s 10th anniversary, the museum revisits its foundation of bridging the private and the public; this exhibition is the first in a series of five, featuring an array of private collections in Singapore, and will be from January 11 to March 1, 2020.
The artworks reflect some of Singapore’s emerging urgencies in recent years by responding to themes of identity, urbanization, the environment, places, and spaces. Emerging showcases some hidden gems, including Kanchana Gupta’s artwork, Work in Progress #120. The artwork concept signifies one of the most important social phenomena of the 20th century – migration. Charlie and Whiskey I by Melissa Tan is formed from acrylic on watercolour paper, compressed foam, asphalt lacquer and resin –
depicting Singapore’s ever-changing and developing infrastructure. Visitors will witness artwork from artists such as Faris Nakamura, Genevieve Chua, Melissa Tan, and many more.
