Pinacothèque de Paris, the largest private art museum in Paris, will open its first venue outside of Europe in Singapore. Set to fully open by the first quarter of 2015, the Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris will be located at the Fort Canning Centre, within Fort Canning Park.
The museum in Singapore will mirror that of France, a fine art museum known for its critically acclaimed exhibitions that celebrate transversality and the dialogue between different works of art. To provide visitors with a taste of what is to come when Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris officially opens, a pop-up exhibition will be held from 14 September to 31 December 2013.
Entitled “The Art of Collecting, Masterpieces from the Pinacothèque de Paris”, the exhibition spans over 500 years of art history through 20 prestigious works of art by world-famous artists including Botticelli, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Monet, Warhol, Modigliani, Picasso and Chu Teh Chun among others.
