Poetic Strokes: Singapore’s Classical Chinese Poetry in Calligraphy

Poetic Strokes: Singapore’s Classical Chinese Poetry in Calligraphy

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 19thcentury to present day. In 2020, ten local calligraphers were invited 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.

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