2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of Singaporean dramatist Kuo Pao Kun, who was an iconic figure in the local arts and culture scene. An art activist and public intellectual, he assembled a critical mass of art enthusiasts, with many talented individuals blossoming into multi-faceted artists and practitioners.

Some of Kuo’s pioneering works include translating and presenting Bertolt Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle in 1967, setting up The Substation in 1990, and establishing local, regional and international networks, making possible artistic and theatrical exchanges.

Kuo’s life will be exhibited for the first time at the National Museum of Singapore through a selection of photographs, manuscripts, letters, theatrical costumes and interviews with his peers. The exhibition will also highlight the development of arts and culture in Singapore in the last seven decades.
