For the past two decades, the two-storey house has been the home of artist Tay Joo Mee and her family. But the $15-million property has since been sold again and before it changes hands, its doors will open to the public for a showcase of Chen’s works.
Homecoming: Chen Wen Hsi Exhibition @ Kingsmead runs at the artist’s former residence, with about 20 figurative, abstract and calligraphy paintings in different parts of the house. It is organised by Artcommune Gallery, curated by Mr Johnny Quek, director of Merlin Gallery, and partially funded by the National Arts Council. Most of the paintings will come from Mr Quek’s private collection.
Venue: 5 Kingsmead Road, Singapore 267960
When: 12 Apr - 3 May 2019, 12noon - 7.30pm
