In conjunction with the Singapore Art Week and to commemorate renowned Singaporean sculptor, Anthony Poon (1945 – 2006) on the 10th anniversary of his passing, The Private Museum is proud to present From Maquettes to Sculptures: An Anthony Poon Estate Collection.

This is the first major exhibition of Poon’s sculptural maquettes from the artist estate collection following his last retrospective exhibition in 2009. The exhibition showcases a selection of 25 maquettes; of which some were materialised into iconic public commissions and others remained as unrealised ideas in the artist’s estate collection.

Tracing the Cultural Medallion recipient’s artistic practice as a sculptor, the highlights of the exhibition include significant commissions such as Affinity commissioned for the HDB Hub, Aspirations for the Old Hill Street Police Station, Crimson Eagle for Tampines Junction, Joyluck for Singapore Turf Club, Sense Surround for St Regis Hotel and Waves Columns for International Plaza.
