About the Programme

Join the curators of the exhibition Human x Nature: Environmental Histories of Singapore, Georgina Wong and Chia Jie Lin, as they share interesting stories of some exhibits on display.

Held in conjunction with the National Library's exhibition, "Human x Nature: Environmental Histories of Singapore".

About the Exhibition

Singapore’s natural environment, as we know and experience today, is the result of a long history of knowledge gathering, plantation agriculture and attempts at rehabilitation. This exhibition explores our relationships with the natural world from cultural understandings and scientific study to commercial and urban land use, as well as conservation and restoration.

Modelled after our changing natural landscapes, the exhibition features a dazzling array of natural history books, botanical prints, plantation photographs and maps from the collections of the National Library and National Archives, together with herbarium and natural history specimens on loan from the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, Singapore Botanic Gardens and Urban Redevelopment Authority. Visitors will learn about various understandings of the natural world, and how they shaped the different ways local, colonial, and migrant communities lived within and transformed the natural landscape.
