Living with Ink: The Collection of Dr Tan Tsze Chor at the Asian Civilisations Museum presents highlights from the collection of Singapore's renowned art collector Dr Tan Tsze Chor. Since 2000, the Tan family has donated to the museum over 130 treasured Chinese paintings, porcelains, and scholars' objects from this collection. The exhibition includes paintings by modern Chinese masters Ren Bonian, Xu Beihong, and Qi Bashi, 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.
