Event Dates: 9th Apr 2009 to 16th Aug 2009
Time of Event: Mon-Sun: 10am – 7pm Fri: 10am – 9pm (Free admission from 12pm–2pm on weekdays & 6pm–9pm on Fri)
Venue: Singapore Art Museum

Wu Guanzhong’s donation of 113 works to the Singapore Art Museum in 2008 is the highest valued donation presented to a public museum in Singapore. This exhibition will showcase all 113 works representing five decades of the artist’s creative oeuvre. A key significance of Wu Guanzhong’s art is the crossing and synthesising of the two art forms of ink and oil which represent art historical and aesthetic contexts of traditional Chinese and western art.

To Wu, the feelings of the individual were supreme. Equally important, however, was the individual’s emotional link with the community. Hence his famed line, the “Unbroken Kite String”, which expounds the connection between formal abstraction and everyday life, and acknowledges its source in the community.

A strong advocate of developing culture and the arts, and a man who holds deep respect for intercultural values, Wu’s broad brushstroke gesture of presenting his largest donation to the Singapore Art Museum will be celebrated jointly by the art community as well as the Singapore public when the galleries open their doors on 9 April.
