Han Suyin in Malaya: In conversation with Professor Koh Tai Ann and Ina Zhang
25 July 2015, Saturday, 3.30pm
ST Lee Atrium, NUS Museum

The first of a two-part programme on the life and ideas of Han Suyin, NUS Museum presents this film screening of Love is a Many-Splendored Thing as an introduction to the background of Han Suyin, prior to her arrival in Malaya. The second part on 25 July 2015 will feature Professor Koh Tai Ann and Ms Ina Zhang, a journalist, in conversation as they discuss Han Suyin in Malaya, her views, her writings and her ideas.

As a contemporary of Marco Hsu, a Chinese writer who wrote a series of newspaper articles under the title A Brief History of Malayan Art, Han Suyin was part of the diversity of voices that reflected the aspirations of the different communities of Malaya. Together, this programme considers how Han Suyin’s ideas may still have resonance fifty years after the merger and independence of Singapore.

About the Foundations Series

Held in conjunction with the exhibition Between Here and Nanyang: Marco Hsu’s Brief History of Malayan Art, the Foundations Series is conceived to contextualise art and artistic practices against the backdrop of nation building and independence in the period of the merger of Singapore and Malaya.
