About the exhibition: Living with Ink: The Collection of Dr Tan Tsze Chor
Living with Ink: The Collection of Dr Tan Tsze Chor at the Asian Civilisations Museum presents highlights from the over 130 treasured Chinese paintings, porcelains, and scholars' objects donated to the museum since 2000 by the Tan family. The exhibition includes paintings by modern Chinese masters Ren Bonian, Xu Beihong, and Qi Baishi, as well as works made by artists in Singapore in the 1930s through the 1980s, when Dr Tan was building his collection. Living with Ink explores how Chinese art was appreciated by networks of overseas Chinese collectors and philanthropists, giving you a glimpse into the Singapore art world in the turbulent 20th century.
