The Story of Singapore Through Art

I chanced upon this exhibition that presents the story of Singapore through photographs, paintings and videos of prominent leaders who helped shape the country, with particular focus on founding Prime Minister Late Lee Kuan Yew.

He recalls the historic meeting of Late Lee and Deng Xiaoping in 1978 when China was an impoverished country. Mr Lee convinced the Chinese leader to open up the country’s economy and the rest is history.
