About the Curator
Georgina Wong is an Assistant Curator at the National Library and co-curator of On Paper: Singapore Before 1867. She was also involved in curating exhibitions such as Selling Dreams: Early Advertising in Singapore, and From The Stacks: Highlights from the National Library.
This programme is held in conjunction with the exhibition On Paper: Singapore Before 1867.
On Paper: Singapore Before 1867 features over 150 paper-based artefacts that tell the story of Singapore’s early history – from a 17th-century Portuguese navigational chart that points to the existence of a Shahbandar (harbour master) on Singapore island to the key document that established the Straits Settlements as a Crown Colony of Britain on 1 April 1867.
Through carefully preserved records from the collections of the National Library, National Archives of Singapore and overseas institutions, On Paper presents a rare treat to all who are interested in our nation’s past.
