Hawker Tradition Inspires Art


A Singaporean hawker in his natural environment.

The nuances of Singaporean hawker culture are recognized around the world from the icons of Newton Circus to Old Airport Road, and the traditional treats of satay and chicken rice. A new art installation in Singapore will celebrate its national tradition through an audio and visual exhibition.

Presented by The Arts House and The Academy Pte Ltd, the free gallery dubbed “Nine Hundred Days” showcases the world of Singapore’s hawkers through video interviews and a collection of photographs. An emphasis is placed on the vanishing craft of handmade hawker fare and multi-generational masters of the makanan.

Created in conjunction with Singapore HeritageFest2013, the exhibit will run from June 13 to July 31.
