Exhibition [artcommune]: Homecoming: Chen Wen Hsi Exhibition @ Kingsmead

April 12, 2019

 

artcommune gallery proudly presents ‘Homecoming: Chen Wen Hsi Exhibition @ Kingsmead’. This landmark exhibition aims to connect audiences with the lived world of Singapore pioneer master Chen Wen Hsi. 5 Kingsmead Road is the only private residence that has been marked as a historic site under two categories by the National Heritage Board, specifically culture and community, and art. For the first time, this private residence will be open to the public to showcase two historic mural works created by Chen Wen Hsi in the period of 1959-1964. A hallmark of 5 Kingsmead Road, these murals are symbolic of not just his artistic accomplishments but also everyday life. In addition, over 30 paintings drawn from private collections will be on exhibit inside the house, which offers audiences a unique opportunity to view some of the best works created by the artist in his lifetime.

This exhibition is also supported by a 3D model of the old house, contributed by DP Architects. Artists Ben Loong (installation), Debra Ong and Jennifer Ng (performance art) will also create art in response to the murals and Chen Wen Hsi’s body of works.

 

Supported by National Arts Council, Singapore
