Flashes of Brilliance

In conjunction with Singapore's 54th year of independence, The Private Museum (TPM) Singapore presents Flashes of Brilliance: Selected Works of Chen Wen Hsi from the Collections of Johnny Quek and the Lewis Sisters. As part of the museum’s Collector Series, visitors will be able to view previously unseen works by the late Singaporean pioneer artist, Chen Wen Hsi.

In this special edition, the exhibition brings together two private collections, from Johnny Quek—a close friend and long-time patron of Chen—and the Lewis sisters, Jennifer Lewis and Geraldine Lewis-Pereira. The selected works will be accompanied by stories from the collectors as well as rare insights into Chen’s artistic process.

We invite viewers to rediscover Chen Wen Hsi through the lens of private collectors and the untold stories behind their collections. For more information, please visit The Private Museum.
