Contemporary Art Society worked with Aspen to extend their collection to their Singapore office in 2011. The Contemporary Art Society has been developing Aspen’s collection over several years with strong creative ideas that provide unexpected perspectives onto the world, while also reflecting the individuality of each office.
Many of the works in the collection are acquired from emerging artists from throughout the country in which each office is located. In this way, Aspen invests in the cultural future of people internationally. The extension of the collection to include works by Singaporean artists provides the opportunity to further strengthen and diversify the collection.
The selection of artworks was based on the long-standing traditions of ink and calligraphic imagery in Asian culture, forming a powerful visual language that operates dynamically within the contemporary space of the offices.
