Season of Chinese Art
Time Out says
Asian Civilisations Museum opens doors for culture vultures to explore the best of both traditional and contemporary Chinese art through artworks, heritage, culture and fashion from China and Singapore. Kickstarting the latest season is Guo Pei: Chinese Art and Couture (June 15 to September 15). Known for her iconic yellow cape as worn by Rihanna at the MET Gala in 2015, China's preeminent couturière Guo Pei is showcasing 29 of her most iconic embroidered creations in dialogue with 20 Chinese art masterpieces from ACM’s collection.
That's not all – a special exhibition opens later this year to showcase the collection of Southeast Asia's renowned Chinese art collector, the late Dr Tan Tsze Chor, which features paintings by Ren Bonian, Qi Baishi, and Xu Beihong. The season then concludes with two collaborations – one with Beijing’s Palace Museum, showcasing the masterpieces of Ming-dynasty art, and the second with the Shanghai Museum, where highlights from the Tang Shipwreck collection at ACM travel to Shanghai in a first-ever special exhibition in China.
