Tiong Bahru Sketches: Outside/In

As the only art gallery in the in the community of Tiong Bahru, we wanted to pay homage by having our first programmed exhibit about it. We have invited sketchers Paul Wang, Tia Boon Sim, Don Low and Miel to create sketches of Tiong Bahru from street level, from inside the homes of people we know who live here, and at different times of the day to give a feel of what Tiong Bahru is now. For many Singaporeans, Tiong Bahru is something from the past. It has retained the core of its structures that have been here since the 1930s. But at the same time, as a living community, it is growing. We wanted to keep a record of the changes it is experiencing now, for posterity and to examine how the artists see Tiong Bahru.

Please come to our opening on June 30, 7pm, to share our joy as we celebrate Tiong Bahru through the art of Paul Wang, Tia Boon Sim, Don Low and Miel.

A lecture on the architecture of Tiong Bahru by resident architect and Vice Chairman of the Seng Poh Residents Association Mr. Kelvin Ang follows at 730pm.

See you there!
