To help visitors understand the Kuo Pao Kun exhibition better, National Museum of Singapore is organizing two special guided tours: one by his wife, Goh Lay Kuan, and another with the curator of the exhibit, Lynn Lee.
1) Special Guided Tour with Goh Lay Kuan
Tues 29 Jan & 19 Feb 2013 | 10.30am (2 hours)
In 1965, upon returning from an education in Australia, Kuo Pao Kun and Goh Lay Kuan founded the Singapore Performing Arts School, which also launched a lifelong career for the couple. Embark on this tour with Goh Lay Kuan, soul mate and comrade of Kuo Pao Kun, as she recounts the various milestones of her arduous journey as an artist in Singapore.
2) Special Guided Tour with Curator
19 Jan 2013 (In Mandarin), Sat 12 Jan & 16 Feb 2013 (In English) | 3pm (1 hour)
2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of Kuo Pao Kun (1939-2002), who remains the beacon of contemporary Singapore theatre. As a dramatist, activist and public intellectual, Kuo played an instrumental role in developing the arts in this country. Join our curator, Lynn Lee, as she takes you through the exhibition that sheds light on the life and works of Kuo Pao Kun.
