Ju Ming Singapore 2004 Exhibition

 

The Singapore Art Museum, the Ju Ming Museum in Taiwan and iPreciation are co-organising what hopes to be the largest solo sculpture exhibition ever in Singapore.

Ju Ming, considered one of the greatest Asian sculptors, has chosen Singapore over the invitations of other international cities to unveil his Taiji Arches, a series that has never been publicly shown.

This signifies the end of his Taiji series -- his signature work which today can be found in museums and private collections worldwide. In addition, we will showcase sculptures from his Living World and Gentlemen Series.

Slated for July 1st 2004, this six month long exhibition will feature over 70 sculptures at various proposed venues that include the Singapore Art Museum, Changi Airport, and Orchard Road.

In conjunction with the exhibition, we will also be conducting a series of Public Talks conducted by Asian Art scholars discussing Asian art & sculpture. Moreover, a comprehensive collection of outreach programmes in the form of guided walking tours, contemporary dance, and multicultural Taiji demonstrations will be held to engage and educate the public.

This will be the first exhibition of Ju Ming’s works in Singapore since 1986, when he exhibited at the former National Museum of Singapore, presently Singapore History Museum.

Fund-raising Gala Dinner cum Auction

The organisers will be holding a Gala Dinner in early April to raise funds for the exhibition. The dinner programme will be highlighted by a charity auction supervised by Christies.  Moved by the selfless efforts of the Venerable Ming-Yi of Ren Ci Hospital, Ju Ming will carve a wooden sculpture of Venerable Ming-Yi and donate additional ink works. Proceeds from the auction will go to both Ren Ci Hospital and the Singapore Art Museum. CNBC Anchor Ms Bettina Chuna will be the emcee for this event.

Public Talks & Outreach Programmes

In a series of public art talks, international scholars will speak on public art and sculpture. In addition, a number of activities will complement the exhibition during its six month showing.

They include guided talk tours, multicultural Taiji demonstrations, children’s programmes, sculpture walk tours, and modern interpretive dance.

The Exhibition opens to the public from 1 July 2004 to 19 September 2004, Mondays to Sundays (10am to 7pm), with extended hours and free admission on Fridays from 6pm to 9pm. Venue: SAM Upper & Lower Galleries.

Admission fees: $3.00 Adult/$1.50 Child (6 – 16 yrs) or Senior Citizen (60 yrs and above).
