The Singapore Heritage Society, together with the National Heritage Board, the National Library Board and the National Archives of Singapore, presents two exhibitions on the Battle for Singapore in 1942…
Four Days in February: Adam Park, The Last Battle
Visit the exhibition and find out more about Adam Park and its role as one of Britain’s defence positions in Singapore during the World War II (WWII). The exhibition features a physical recreation of the typology of Adam Park and showcases the research findings and artefacts uncovered by the Singapore Heritage Society during its archaeological excavation of Adam Park.
Images of Internment: The Eye and Art of William Haxworth
Ex-Prisoner-of-War and accomplished artist William Haxworth provides his perspective on World War II in Singapore through over one hundred pieces of his artworks depicting life in the Prisoner-of-War camps. The artworks are on loan from the National Archives of Singapore’s Haxworth Collection, together with selected sketches by Mr Chia Chew Soo, from the National Archives Collection, and drawings by internationally renowned Singaporean artist Liu Kang on the Japanese Occupation in Singapore. The exhibition serves as an extension to the Adam Park story.
Both exhibitions are curated by the Singapore Heritage Society and Forth Research Design.
Exhibition Details: 9 February 2012 – 24 June 2012, National Library Singapore, Level 10, National Library Gallery
