The Peranakan Museum’s latest exhibition – Nyonya Needlework: Embroidery and Beadwork in the Peranakan World – celebrates the art of Nyonya needlework and demonstrates how the Peranakans created new needlework styles and techniques while striking a balance between innovation and working within traditions in this increasingly cosmopolitan world in which they lived.
Showcasing close to 200 intricately embroidered and beaded artworks, with nearly half of them from Singapore’s national collection, the Nyonya Needlework exhibition also includes objects from private lenders and international museums, such as the Rijksmuseum and the National Museum of World Cultures in the Netherlands.
These fine objects, ranging from some of the earliest dated embroidered and beaded pieces to celebratory items such as wedding slippers, bed and wall ornaments, and personal accessories such as belts, purses and handkerchiefs, not only represent millions of hours of painstaking handstiches, but also tell stories of Peranakan celebrations and daily lives.
Come join us to discover the ingenuity and skill embedded in the art, and the innovations inspired by the dynamic, multicultural environment of the region.

1973 was a milestone year in Tan Swie Hian’s life during which he experienced a breakthrough in his spirituality and creative capacity. Henceforth, his artistic creations have been characterised by freedom – in medium, subject matter, genre and expression. The artist likens his newfound free mind to a hummingbird that can fly in all directions and experience different realms of reality.
Now, more than 40 years later, Tan’s works are presented again at the National Library in this exhibition featuring over 100 creations in a wide range of media. This is the first time the multidisciplinary artist’s creative process, as documented in his notebooks through writings and sketches, has been featured with his artworks.
Discover the extraordinary world of a free mind through Tan Swie Hian’s creations and notebooks!

To add to the experience, The Music Run empowers The Music Runners to decide the songs they want to run to. Using a bespoke online music selection app powered by Spotify, participants can vote up to five songs per playlist every day to build the official soundtrack for each zone. The songs with the most votes will be played on the day and make the official soundtrack for the Singapore run.
The Music Run by AIA will kick off with sets by a local act at the Music Village before the run begins at 3.30pm, and end with an After Party featuring international radio house DJ Sam Withers. Throughout the event, Music Runners will also be treated to a range of fun and exciting activities in the Music Village.
