Biography:

Lynn Lee is Programmes Manager at The Arts House in Singapore, an arts centre promoting and presenting multidisciplinary art programmes, which include literary art, films, performing and visual arts. In 2012 at the National Museum of Singapore, where she worked as assistant curator, she curated an exhibition on Kuo Pao Kun, father of modern Singapore theatre and mentor of a number of leading directors in the current theatre scene of Singapore. This exhibition was a landmark presentation of the late Kuo, and was curated to include physically the theatre piece Goh Lay Kuan and Kuo Pao Kun (directed by Ong Keng Sen). The performance presented an intimate portrait of dance pioneer Goh Lay Kuan through over 40 hours of oral history interviews and seminal plays of Kuo Pao Kun. Lee was also a key member of the curatorial team in the redevelopment of the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, which reopened in 2011 in commemoration of the 100th year anniversary of the Chinese Republican Revolution.

Curatorial Statement:

Occupying the almost 200-year-old building that was Singapore’s first Parliament House, The Arts House has played an active role in supporting and presenting various art forms in Singapore, including contemporary dance, chamber music, literary art and small theatre.
