2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of Singaporean dramatist Kuo Pao Kun. An art activist and public intellectual, Kuo was a forerunner in the local arts and culture industry. He developed a critical mass of enthusiasts in the local theatre scene, with many talented individuals blossoming into multi-faceted artists and practitioners.

Some of Kuo’s pioneering acts included Bertolt Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle presented in 1967, assembling and setting up a home for the Arts – 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, costumes and archival footage. The exhibition will also shed light on the development of arts and culture in Singapore.
