The Art of Collecting
Sept 14 to Dec 31
Fort Canning Centre
Prepare to journey through 500 years of art history as prestigious works by the likes of Botticelli, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Monet, Renoir, Modigliani and Picasso are exhibited in Singapore for the first time.
Marc Restellini, director of Pinacothèque de Paris, doesn't believe in focusing on just one particular period within an exhibition space - the way that most museums show their collections.
He prefers what he calls "Transversality" - putting on display pieces from different eras so that they come alive from the timeless and border-less "dialogue" that they create with each other within the room. Not to be missed.
