About the Museum
The Parkview Museum Singapore is a private museum established by the Parkview Group. Located in Parkview Square, it occupies a floor area of 1,500 square metres with up to six metres of ceiling height. It is a brand new space conceived to host exhibitions with an emphasis on contemporary art. Its exhibitions will alternate between solo shows, thematic exhibitions, and exhibitions featuring pieces from the Group’s extensive collection.
The combination of art and business, that of which places significance on architectural design and traditional art and culture, has long been a core value in the Group’s real estate model—a vision begun by founder Mr. Hwang Chou-Shiuan. The Group has continued this legacy of art for over 50 years. To date, the Group’s art collection includes the largest Salvador Dali collection outside of Spain, numerous art works by western masters, an invaluable collection of imperial Chinese stone Buddhist carvings, a vast body of ancient bronze ware, and a substantial collection of contemporary Chinese art amounting to over 10,000 works.
The late Mr George Wong, eldest son of founder CS Hwang, was an Honorary Professor at the Nanjing University of the Arts and was key in shaping a coherent and structured art collection. Since 2013, the art collection has grown in scale and prestige, to include masterpieces from Italian, Austrian, German, French and American contemporary art.
