At the bottom of the Glass Rotunda, visitors will encounter the Singapore, Very Old Tree exhibit by renowned local photographer and artist, Robert Zhao. Inspired by one of the oldest postcards found in the National Archives of Singapore depicting an unspecified tree dating back to the year 1904, the set of 30 images from the project have been acquired by the National Museum of Singapore and are the newest additions to the National Collection. The Singapore, Very Old Tree exhibit will showcase 17 images out of the 30 that have been acquired, highlighting intimate stories of each and giving visitors an alternative perspective of Singapore’s history and the personal connections that Singaporeans have with our local trees.
Venue: National Museum of Singapore, Level 2
