Emerging: Collecting Singapore Contemporary – Selections from the DUO Collection
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.
