The Transmission of Singapore Fujian Nanyin Exhibition 新加坡福建南音传承展

About the Exhibition

Nanyin music is one of the oldest existing music styles of China. It is an ancient art form that has been transmitted from the Han dynasty to present times, passed down from master to student through the oral tradition. This exhibition traces the development of Nanyin music in Singapore, and it is the first of its kind. Preparation for the exhibition began as early as 2005, where team members visited local and overseas Nanyin societies and consulted Nanyin veterans to gather materials and information. They were tireless in their efforts to record and document this important piece of cultural heritage for future generations. If you would like to learn more about the Nanyin tradition, do visit the library@esplanade from 27 Jan to 3 Mar 2013. The exhibition is held at the Glass Showcase exhibition area, with artifacts, manuscripts and scores for viewing, and the Innovation Gallery, where information and a video about Nanyin is on display.

As a tie-in with the exhibition, talks and performances are also on every Sunday from 27 January – 3 March at the Open Stage, library@esplanade.

The Transmission of Singapore Fujian Nanyin Exhibition” is presented by the Traditional Southern Fujian Music Society, and supported by library@esplanade.

展览简介

正所谓 “溯源无误,流变可稽”, 若要对一门艺术作出正确的判断,必需将它的发展传承的来龙去脉理清。

“新加坡福建南音传承展”的史料收集始于2005年,至今历时8年,是首个将新加坡南音的发展历史和传承系统整理和公布的展览。口传的南音艺术在新加坡华人社会有着相当重要的文化历史意义。期间,参与人员多次到民间及海外取证和记录前辈的口述资料,力求完整真实的记录新加坡南音的发展和传承历史,以求留给后人一份宝贵的文化历史遗产。展览期间还安排了南音前辈和传统艺术学者以不同的角度解读传统南音的历史和现实意义。对于希望了解新加坡南音存在和发展历史历程的朋友,这将是一个难得的机会。

“新加坡福建南音传承展” 由传统南音社呈现,滨海艺术中心公共图书馆支持。
