Wu Guanzhong: A Walk through Nature
1 St Andrew’s Road #01–01,
Dec 14, 2016 To Dec 03, 2017
Detail: Wu Guanzhong travelled widely across China in his lifetime, covering numerous cities and drawing inspiration from the rivers, mountains and towns that he encountered. This exhibition explores 16 works which Wu painted of China from the 1960s until the 2000s. Join Wu on his search for beauty—not only in the landscape, but also within the painted forms in his work.
This is the first in a series of exhibitions at the Wu Guanzhong Gallery. On an annual rotation basis, this dedicated space showcases works donated by Wu and his family, within the wider context of ink aesthetics and art history. The most valuable donation ever made to a Singapore museum to date, this is the largest holding of his work in a public museum in the world.
