In celebration of Singapore’s 52nd anniversary of independence, The Private Museum is proud to present Benny Ong: Walking the Thought. This solo exhibition marks the first showcase of works by the renowned fashion designer and textile artist, Benny Ong at The Private Museum.
Along with other textile works centred on Buddhist themes, the exhibition revisits a series of Ong’s older works from his inaugural textile exhibition titled, Re-woven: A Celebration of Lives opened at the Singapore Arts Museum a decade ago. The body of Buddhist-centrictextile works is a reflection of the artist’s interpretation of the Buddha’s teachings based on inner contemplation, peace, dualism, compassion and meditation.
Through the use of succinct imagery, Ong bridges his spiritual beliefs with art making— compelling viewers to get a closer glimpse of the thought process behind his artistic practice.
The exhibition will be a special fundraiser that helps raise funds for The Private Museum and all donors will receive a tax deduction from donations made to the museum. The Private Museum is a registered charity and a registered Institution of a Public Character, which is able to issue tax deductible receipts for qualifying donations to donor. Part of sales proceeds from purchase of artworks from the exhibition may also be eligible for tax exemption.
