After months of hard work, we are pleased to announce “Becoming and Being”, Ode to Art’s first ever virtual exhibition by Hong Zhu An, supported by the National Arts Council. Featuring 25 new works presented exclusively online at Ode To Art from Aug 17. As the collection’s title ‘蓄’ denotes the concept of saving one’s strength with perseverance and dedication, rather than living frivolously in the moment, we hope Becoming and Being will resonate with viewers in a year full of change and unpredictability. #nationalartscouncilsingapore #odetoart #odetoartgallery #museummomentofzen #gallerymomentofzen #contemporaryart #interiordesign #singapoeinteriordesign #artforinteriors #artforhomes
