To the exhibition of Contemporary Arts Singapore
The Haudenschilid collection is, for me, exemplary of good art collecting practices. It is not noly impressive for the way the Haudenschilds have bulit up such a significant and focused collection during a short period of time, it is also exemplary for the attitude they have adopted in their support of the artists whose work they collect. By exhibiting their collection in Singapore, it was also my intention to draw attention to the way the Haudenschilds go about their collecting activities, and raise awareness of the role and responsibilities of collectors.
As the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore is committed to showcasing significant trends as well as the best examples of for us to organize at the gallery. Not only does the exhibition highlight of video and photography, many of the artists in the exhibition are also internationally renowned, theereby probiding audiences in Singapore a rate opportunity to see their works...
It was also a first for Singapore to have and exhibition of this kind, a major exhibition of contemporary Chinese photography and video.
