Emerging: Collecting Singapore Contemporary – Selections from the DUO Collection

In conjunction with Singapore Art Week 2020, The Private Museum Singapore is pleased to present Emerging: Collecting Contemporary Singapore – Selections from The Duo Collection. As part of The Private Museum'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 almost a decade. 

Emerging is the inaugural showcase of selected works from The Duo Collection featuring emerging Singapore-based artists. The exhibition seeks not only to stimulate new conversations in Singapore contemporary art but also to expand on the role of private collectors in the art eco-system as imperative patrons of the arts.
