Curator Tour of Preserve/Conserve/Restore: Studies at 157 Neil Road


Currently on display at the NUS Baba House gallery, Preserve/Conserve/ Restore: Studies at 157 Neil Road is an initiative which seeks to tap the under explored potential of 157 Neil Road as a site for engaging with the disciplines of urban development and technical conservation of built heritage. Three studies are presented to kick start the project – Archaeology, Architectural Paint Analysis and Land Development.

The curator tour introduces the archaeological and conservation studies carried out before 157 Neil Road was restored in 2007, and the aims of the current project which seeks to engage with students, researchers and industry professionals in examining the issues and strategies involved in conserving and maintaining heritage structures.

Free, limited to 13 pax per tour. Recommended for adults and children aged 13 and above. Advanced booking is required.

The Curator Tour of Preserve/Conserve/Restore: Studies at 157 Neil Road is a part of Singapore Art Week 2016 (16-24 January).
