Last year was a fantastic year for exhibitions in Singapore, with ACMI’s Wonderland exhibition being shown here, the incredible Guo Pei exhibition shown at ACM and then Disney’s Magic of Animation exhibition at the ArtScience Museum to end the year!
While I didn’t think 2020 was going to be able to top 2019’s exhibitions, I was still looking forward to several announced ones, but due to the pandemic, all the ones I looked forward to have been cancelled or postponed. Such a bummer.
A piece of good news though! I visited a very fun and interactive new exhibition at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre earlier this year before the circuit breaker (partial lockdown) started, and I heard that they’ve re-opened in July, so I have to share about it! :)
This exhibition is called SINGAPO人 (or 新加坡华人 in Chinese) and it’s a permanent exhibition at the SCCC which opened in March, with the theme focused on exploring Chinese Singaporean culture. It’s also FREE admission, which is always a good thing.
This exhibition feels more relaxed than a typical “museum exhibition”, if you know what I mean. It’s very fun and colourful, has a casual and approachable style, and the content is presented in an interactive and easy format, which should appeal to a mass audience. I shared some of my favourite parts of the exhibition in this post, but definitely check it out for the full experience!
