In conjunction with Singapore Art Week 2020, The Private Museum (TPM) Singapore is pleased to present Emerging: Collecting Singapore Contemporary – Selections from the DUO Collection. As part of TPM’s 10th anniversary celebrations, the museum revisits its foundation of bridging the private and the public; this exhibition is the first in a series of five featuring an array of private collections in Singapore.

The DUO, whose collectors prefer to remain anonymous, started building their collection five years ago with a focus to support emerging artists in Singapore and Southeast Asia, though they have been collecting widely for more than a decade.

Emerging is the inaugural showcase of selected works collected in the past 5 years featuring 16 Singapore based artists. These works reflect some of Singapore’s emerging urgencies in recent years by responding to themes of identity, migration, urbanization, the environment, places and spaces. The exhibition seeks not only to stimulate new conversations on Singapore contemporary art through the lens of private collectors but also to expand on their role in the art eco-system as imperative patrons of the arts.

Emerging showcases some hidden gems, especially from TPM featured artists which are Kanchana Gupta, Melissa Tan, Faris Nakamura, and Genevieve Chua. Besides, visitors will witness and enjoy more artworks from other artists as well.
