(Re)collect:  The  Making  of  Our  Art  Collection

National Gallery Singapore
Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery B & C
City Hall Wing, Level 3

May 11 – August 19

 

National Gallery Singapore oversees the largest public collection of modern art in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Now it proudly presents (Re)collect:  The  Making  of  Our  Art  Collection. The exhibition reveals the story behind the creation of the National Collection in the 1960s and how it continues to evolve today by highlighting the significant acquisitions and donations made in recent years.

The layers of collecting history emerge from (re)collecting the past and capturing the present through more than 120 works. Featured artists include Affandi, Georgette Chen, Cheo Chai-Hiang, Latiff Mohidin, Lim Hak Tai, Lim Yew Kuan, Navin Rawanchaikul and S. Sudjojono.

Dr Eugene Tn, Director  of  National  Gallery  Singapore,  said: “For  a  collection  of  over  8,600  visual  artworks,  it  is  an  ongoing  process  for  National  Gallery  Singapore  to  delve  deep  and  uncover  stories  behind  these  works  that  are  representative  of  the  zeitgeist  of  the  century.  The diversity and inclusiveness characterise  and  differentiate  our  collection  of  Singapore  and  Southeast  Asian  works  as  they  open  up  possibilities  to  connect  artistic  practices  beyond  national  boundaries.  This has allowed us to continue the endeavour in questioning and re-imagining what constitutes Southeast Asia through art,  and  through  this come  to  understand  our  region’s  heritage  better.  This would not be possible without the goodwill of the artists and private collectors who donated their precious works to us.”

Visitors will be led on a journey that begins during post-war  Singapore  when  art  took  a  backseat  to  nation-building.  They will be able to witness the important milestones  that  led  to  the  crystallisation of  Singapore’s  visual  arts  collection  and  how  it  developed  as  its  custodianship  shifted  from  the  National  Museum  Art  Gallery  (NMAG)  in  1976  to  Singapore  Art  Museum  in  1996  and  to  the  present- day  National  Gallery  Singapore  which  opened  in  2015. 

It  all began  when  Dato  Loke  Wan  Tho,  a  leading  philanthropist and co-founder  of  Cathay  Organisation,  donated  more  than  110  works  from  his  personal  collection  to  Singapore  in  1960,  with  the  wish  that  they  would  eventually  be  housed  in  a  new  art  gallery.  This  donation formed  Singapore’s  seedling collection  of  visual  art,  with  the  first  registered  artwork  titled  Self-Portrait by  Chuah  Thean  Teng.

Dato Loke’s  wish  came  true  with  the  opening  of  the  National  Museum  Art  Gallery.  Several  works  from  NMAG’s  inaugural  exhibition  donated  by  artists  will  be  on  display  at  the  exhibition.  This includes And  Miles  to  Go  before  I  Sleep by  Singapore  artist  Cheo  Chai  Hiang,  a  conceptual  work  comprising found  objects  –a  log  and  a  wooden  laundry  board  bearing  an  excerpt  from a  renowned  poem  by Robert  Frost.

Also featured is the Gallery’s  new  collecting focus  on  photography,  a  medium  historically  under-represented  in  the  collection. 

Visitors can also look  forward  to  getting  up-close  with  recent  important  acquisitions  by  the  Gallery.  This includes Singaporean  artist  Kim  Lim’s  Abacus (1959),  Pegasus (1962)  and  Naga (1984)  which  will  be  shown  together  for  the  first  time;  as  well  as  early works  by  Malaysian  artist  Latiff  Mohidin.
