Ongoing Programmes

Life in Edo | Russel Wong in Kyoto

Venue: Asian Civilisations Museum
Date: 16 Apr to 17 Oct 2021

Life in Edo | Russel Wong in Kyoto explores Japanese art and culture through two mediums – woodblock prints and photography. The woodblock prints section looks at lifestyles and trends of Edo period Japan (1603 – 1868), including people's travels, ideas on beauty, pets, food and entertainment. The other component explores the beauty of nature and architecture of Kyoto today. It also captures the vanishing traditions of the geisha (geiko in Kyoto dialect) community through the lens of Singaporean photographer Russel Wong.

The exhibition plays on the notion of duality: past and present, print and photography, Edo (today’s Tokyo and current capital) and Kyoto (the old capital). One side focuses on the past and the other looks at the present, yet the exhibition will attempt to show that past trends and lifestyles are still relevant to us today, and are a big part of what draws people to Japan.


Venue: Asian Civilisations Museum
Date: 25 Jun to 19 Dec 2021

#SGFASHIONNOW is ACM’s first display of contemporary Singapore fashion, exploring creative practice in Singapore in the context of Asia’s cultural heritage. The exhibition is a collaboration with LASALLE College of the Arts’ School of Fashion and the Textile and Fashion Federation (TaFF), and represents our commitment to working with community and industry to celebrate local fashion. ACM hopes to encourage new ways of addressing the question - “What is Singapore fashion?” from the perspective of our essence as an open, global, multi-cultural port city. In a departure from past exhibitions, students from LASALLE’s School of Fashion are the curators for this exhibition, with ACM staff and LASALLE faculty providing mentorship. #SGFASHIONNOW features works by eight practising designers, including Andrew Gn, Goh Lai Chan, Priscilla Shunmugam, and Carol Chen - winner of TaFF’s 2020 edition of Singapore Stories, an annual fashion design competition for emerging, locally-based designers.
