thINK: Chinese Calligraphy, Connoisseurship, and Collecting has 23 exhibits specially curated from longtime ACM lender Dr Yuan's extensive collection of literati objects, along with books and letters from important personalities from the Ming and Qing dynasties.
These artefacts are displayed in a stylish contemporary setting that will appeal to history buffs and Instagrammers alike.
One section has a row of Chinese moon gate-style partitions that serve as a cool photo backdrop.
thINK (or think ink) is meant to evoke personal responses regarding the act of remembering via collecting, storing and retrieving. Reflect on relationships and what we choose to hold on to, and gain insight into Chinese calligraphy, political sentiments, military affairs, and antiquity trading.
The exhibition will be up until 25 April 2021 and entry is free for Singaporeans and PRs. For foreign visitors, tickets are priced at $8 for adults, $4 for students and seniors, $24 for a family of five and free for children 6 years and below.
Some other upcoming activities at ACM are a Caravanserai from 13 - 21 March with products, F&B and programmes that focus on craft and innovation, as well as Life in Edo x Russel Wong in Kyoto from 16 April to 19 September, an exhibition that presents Japanese art and culture through woodblock prints and photography.
