About This Book

Written by veteran art collector Teng Jee Hum, this book offers a wealth of insights and observations on art collecting amassed over a period of 25 years. Sharing his personal framework to considering Singapore's art history, the book presents works by Singaporean artists that narrate the "Singapore Story", spanning the 1950s to the present. In this alternative framework proposed, Teng introduces five original and distinct categories that chart Singapore's art history: the Colonial Period (pre-1965), Nation Building Period (1965-1988), Globalisation Period (1989-2000), Paternal Production Period (2001-2015), and a new era (post-2015). A well-explained collecting methodology grounded in an in depth study of the times, with 60+ coloured images.
