The Singaporean identity is inherently plural. In the 1970s, race, culture and language were formalised and enshrined into categories that were at once distinct and discrete. By the mid-1980s, these characterisations were debated and articulated in many different ways by Singapore’s artistic practitioners, who created original works that emphasised expressions of national identity and belonging.

 

In the process, they shaped a vibrant society that could accommodate multiple voices and communities – a legacy that continues to inspire us today.

Through cultural artefacts that include music, performances, television and theatre, this gallery explores how Singaporeans forged a unique voice for themselves. The gallery’s back room features a recreation of a vintage drive-in theatre, where you can recline in seats fashioned in the form of mini cars and pick-up trucks, and watch a specially commissioned film installation that celebrates the many forms of leisure that Singaporeans enjoyed in the past.
