Poems both reflect and express. They reflect Singapore’s past.

They also express the evolving sentiments and identities of the local Chinese.

This exhibition features a selection of Singapore’s classical Chinese poetry composed from the 19th century to present day. In 2020, ten local calligraphers were invited to write these poems because poetry and calligraphy are related art forms. A poem’s emotions can be visually expressed by calligraphy. Likewise, our enjoyment of calligraphic strokes may be enhanced by a poem’s content.

This is a joint presentation by Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre and National University of Singapore.

Poems featured in this exhibition are translated into English by Koh Ser Eng.
