Liu Kuo-sung: Experimentation as Method

Liu Kuo-sung: Experimentation as Method is the largest exhibition by a Singapore public museum dedicated to the Chinese ink master, Liu Kuo-sung, which celebrates his artistic career spanning 70 years. This retrospective show traces Liu’s creative evolution through more than 60 paintings and 150 items from the artist's personal archive, highlighting his significant innovations and contributions to the development of modern Chinese ink painting. His experiments in art go beyond the brush; Liu explores different materials and textures, and even invented the “Liu Kuo-sung paper.” He continuously reconstructs tradition with the modern, enabling the creation of a new approach to the time-honoured practice of Chinese ink painting.

Liu Kuo-sung: Experimentation as Method is ticketed. Free admission applies to Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents only. For more info, please visit the event's website or social media platforms.
