This series of presentations are exercises on the epistemology of texts, artefacts, and systems of language that proceeds to trace how it is shaping contemporary society.

As a backdrop to the evolving discussion on Malayan culture which Hsu was part of, the exhibition introduces selected writings by T.K. Sabapathy and S. Rajaratnam, the former pertains to Southeast Asian art historiography, and the latter as a call for a cultural history that forms part of a shaping of community and nation. These frames provide ways to consider the Museum’s collection whose collecting histories may be associated with Malaya’s period of formation and art history.
Through the motifs of spacing and difference, this exhibition features works by the artist Ng Eng Teng produced between 1958 and 2001.

The Chinese Art collection consists of bronzes, ceramics and paintings, gathered to represent the expansive history of Chinese art. The nucleus of this collection was established and developed at the Nanyang University in the 1970s with significant expansion in the 1980s under the newly inaugurated National University of Singapore (NUS).
Bringing together finds from past and newer excavations from Fort Canning (Singapore) to Changsha (China), these finds from the pre-colonial and colonial periods sample the materials produced and used in Singapore and beyond. Further, as part of an evolving body of artefacts, they provide a glimpse into the dynamics between material culture and history, and its making.
If you’ve always wanted to explore the fascinating workings of the human body, why not dive right in? This journey takes you inside the human anatomy, through organs, muscles and systems, and lets you interact and play with the amazing functions of the body.
This feast of light, sound and pneumatics makes this exhibition a perfect way for adults and children to be educated, excited and enlightened about the human body. You’ll step into the mouth of a 6m tall human face into a journey through the fascinating human anatomy. See, hear and feel what it’s like to be an explorer inside five main systems of your body: the circulatory, digestive, immune, nervous and respiratory systems.

Have you ever thought "Great idea. I should have thought of that!" when you see a gadget that would make life that little bit easier?
Well now’s your chance to see lots of them. QUIRKY is a new display of anything odd that looks as if it might just come in handy or even solve a problem. They take a look at strange ideas from one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s flying machines to how to hold pages of a book open with one hand.
From weird musical instruments to foam lighter than a feather that can carry a brick, these fascinating inventions will make you think.
