Memories of Singapore River

Back in the day, as thousands of bumboats bustled about the Singapore River lined with godowns, labourers toiled diligently while drenched in perspiration. 

Moved by these scenes, artists took to their brushes, crafting vivid masterpieces that brimmed with emotion. Memories of Singapore River transports us back to simpler times through paintings and conversations with our veteran painters Lim Tze Peng, Tan Choh Tee, Low Puay Hua, as well as other Singaporeans who resided along the river.

Memories of Singapore River is a documentary film presented in Mandarin with English subtitles. 

There will also be a special exhibition Memories of Singapore River: Paintings by Local Artists held in conjunction at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore by artcommune gallery, and outdoor sketch sessions by Singapore Watercolour Society and Urban Sketchers Singapore at the Singapore River.
