Ongoing exhibitions you can visit to celebrate International Museum Day 2022!

Since its inception in 1977, International Museum Day (IMD) has been celebrated around the world every year on 18 May. In 2021 alone, more than 37,000 museums in 158 countries and territories have participated in IMD, marking this as a special worldwide event for the international museum community. Check out some of the ongoing exhibitions in our local museums below as we welcome the 45th anniversary of IMD this year! 1) National Museum of Singapore With a history dating back to its inception in 1887, the National Museum of Singapore is the nation’s oldest museum, and one of the city’s architectural icons. The National Museum refreshed and re-opened its permanent galleries on 19 September 2015 for Singapore's Golden Jubilee. With updated stories and content, the galleries recapture the nation's defining moments, challenges and achievements from its earliest beginnings 700 years ago to the independent, modern city-state it is today. Permanent Exhibition A Voyage of Love and Longing - Goh Seng Choo Gallery Image taken from National Museum Singapore Discover the fine line between Desire and Danger at this stimulating new exhibition at the Goh Seng Choo Gallery. Featuring creatures that arouse appetites and instil fear, and exotic plants sought for their ability to induce pleasure or pain, this selection of drawings from the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings explores the complex and sometimes uneasy relationship between man and nature. Check out more permanent exhibitions in the National Museum of Singapore here. Ongoing Exhibition Dislocations: Memory and Meaning of the Fall of Singapore, 1942 Dislocations: Memory and Meaning of the Fall of Singapore, 1942 is a commemorative exhibition to mark the 80th anniversary of the British Surrender to the Imperial Japanese Army in Singapore on 15 February 1942.

Two world wars, countless revolutions and genocide separate the works of the young Alban Berg and Anton Webern with the late works of Richard Strauss: the former glistening with possibility and the virility of youth – the latter, resigned to searching for the residual joys that tether us to this world. ⏱ Tue, 3 May 2022 - 5pm 📍 Victoria Concert Hall Get your tickets to this concert experience here. 3) C-O-N-T-A-C-T A young woman sits alone on a park bench, lost in her own thoughts.

Gay boys like her too. She has always felt a profound affinity with them – even as a teenager, before she knew what the term ‘gay’ meant. Over the years, Pam’s adventures have included: coaxing gay boyfriends out of the closet, attending her first gay wedding in 2001, fighting to repeal Section 377A of the Penal Code in 2007, and acting as Pink Dot's Countdown Queen every year (though the job is less ‘queen’ and more ‘drill sergeant’!).

It is no surprise that the emotional intensity and Byronic sensibilities of her work found parallels in Beethoven’s music, and likewise in the music of the “Beethoven of film music”, Bernard Herrmann. British soprano Keri Fuge and baritone Roderick Williams joins the SSO in a suite on Hermann’s only opera, Wuthering Heights, in this unique programme connecting these great artists together. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. ⏱ Fri, 13 May 2022 – 7.30pm 📍 Esplanade Concert Hall Get your tickets to this orchestral masterpiece now! 8) Cultural Extravaganza 2022 - Seven Sisters' Sonata 绕梁七姐诞 [G] Seven Sisters’ Sonata is a unique blend of Chinese chamber music on one of Singapore’s disappearing traditions, the Seven Sisters Festival.
