Singapore Series


Singapore is full of surprises and unexpected treasures. This short series explains some of the less well-known aspects of Singapore’s heritage – both old and new.

Learn things you never knew about the Black and White houses from Dr. Davison who wrote the best-selling book on the subject, how the origins of the house may be traced through India and back to 19th century Britain.

Did you know that there are many amazing sculptures by some of the world’s finest artists – including Salvador Dali and Roy Lichtenstein, for example – scattered about the city? Let Dr. Sian Jay take you through this scavenger journey.

With the recent buzz around the Gilman Barracks visual arts gallery cluster, numerous arts fairs, and the upcoming new National Gallery Singapore, the Singapore visual arts eco-system is looking very vibrant. But what is the real story? Find this out and more in a talk with Art Historian Paul Khoo.


The Singapore Series will take our audience on a learning journey so that you will never see the streets and parks of Singapore in the same way again.
