Anatomy of a Free Mind: Tan Swie Hian’s Notebooks and Creations
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!

Graceful Grit: Tennis and the WTA Finals in Singapore
23 October 2016 to 8 January 2017
Changing Gallery, Singapore Sports Museum
The game of tennis has evolved over the centuries in terms of its equipment, attire, style of play and culture. From a humble beginning of using the palm of one’s hand to rackets made of the latest innovation in technology and material, tennis players throughout the ages had always held one thing in common – their love of the sport.
Today, tennis is played by millions of recreational players and has become a popular worldwide spectator sport. The evolution of the game is inextricably linked to changes in society – in particular, the realm of womankind. This exhibition aims to trace the history and evolution of tennis and highlight the women game-changers of the sport.
