via Straits Times, 15 June 2022: A new exhibition at the Asian Civilisations Museum showcases batik pieces from the region as well as from the national collection.
Ms Tan is one of the local designers whose creations are being showcased at the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) from Friday (June 17) to Oct 2.
Some of the batik designs on show are replicas of the styles from the times of people’s parents and grandparents, with the exhibition’s curator Lee Chor Lin working with fashion-makers to reimagine and replicate them.
Called Batik Kita: Dressing in Port Cities – Batik Kita means Our Batik – the exhibition will feature more than 100 masterpieces from overseas and local lenders, as well as rarely seen batik pieces from the national collection, which conserves artefacts in the fields of paintings, textiles, objects and paper.
