‘Collecting art moves the soul,’ gallery director Teo Kah Chee Rachel tells us. ‘I strive to share the experience with whoever drops by the museum. We wanted an intimate space that bridged [the needs] of collector, artist and audience.’ Started with the idea that art should be shared with the public and not stored away by private collectors, this snugly ensconced gallery amid the central arts district of Bras Basah was originally set up to display Singaporeans’ private art collections. Now, though, The Private Museum exhibits the work of visiting international activists as well as returning local painters, as with its popular ‘TransFiguring: Recent Works’ show by Singapore’s Wong Mei Sheong and Jimmy Ong.
