Wu Guanzhong: Travelling with the Master
Wu Guanzhong. Pandas. 1992. Chinese ink and colour on paper, 122 × 247 cm. Gift of the artist.
Wu Guanzhong: Travelling with the Master is the first exhibition at the Gallery to be co-created by long-serving docents and Gallery. Applying their knowledge of Wu Guanzhong’s art and biography, together with personal stories about works by this modern ink master, a selection of works that were generously donated by the artist and his family to Singapore’s National Collection is featured alongside a compilation of archival materials.
Organised into four thematic sections—Daydreaming, Exploring, Beyond the Horizon and Rhapsodies—this exhibition explores Wu’s conceptual, physical and emotional journeys. Visitors are invited to approach and understand this master’s works with their own senses and be inspired by his art and spirit, just like how the docent-curators have through their individual experiences as docents and museum volunteers.
