Founded by Indonesian collector Kwee Swie Teng in 2003, Art Retreat is Singapore 's first private museum with a significant collection of modern art by some of the most renowned artists of the region.
Situated at the bustling Ubi Industrial Estate, the museum is a testimony to the founder's passion for the arts and enthusiasm to share his exquisite collection with the public. It consists of three parts: the Main Gallery , Wu Guanzhong Gallery and the Collection in the repository.
Art Retreat's vision is to promote the visual arts as a rich cultural resource and to make it accessible to not only the collectors but to the general public as well. It also aims to promote and encourage art appreciation and collecting, exchange of ideas among like minded people and art education and research. In line with its objective to encourage the public display of private collections, it collaborates with private collectors to exhibit their collections in the museum.
