Exploring Singapore's Art Spaces
through Art Catalogues

What can art catalogues tell us about the development of the arts and cultural sector in Singapore? In this video, we speak to librarians from the National Library, Singapore, Nadia Ramli and Kong Leng Foong. Together, they show us how these materials can be referenced and read as important historical documents, and how you can access them for yourself.
