The Chinese Art collection consists of bronzes, ceramics and paintings, gathered to represent the expansive history of Chinese art. The nucleus of this collection was established and developed at the Nanyang University in the 1970s with significant expansion in the 1980s under the newly inaugurated National University of Singapore (NUS).

With works from the Qing Dynasty as a starting point to introduce the general history of Chinese ink traditions, the Inks display goes on to explore its evolution in Chinese art history, as well as its development outside the mainland. Besides paintings by Singaporean artists, from the Nanyang Style to the contemporary, the current display also highlights the pioneering achievements of Singaporean artists in their innovation of a longstanding art form.

Opening hours 10am - 6pm, Tuesday - Saturday
