To promote the growing interest in research on Chinese popular religions of the NUS community, an exhibition showcasing over 180 publications on Chinese temples in Southeast Asia was put up in the Chinese Library. This was also to raise awareness on the primary resources and research works on Chinese temples kept in the Chinese Library.
In conjunction with this exhibition, 8 sketch paintings on Chinese temples and shrines in Singapore by Dr Ho Chee Lick, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Chinese Studies cum local artist, is displayed next to the book exhibition. The paintings included temples and shrines of Buddhism, Taoism, popular religion, and sectarian religions from antiquity to contemporary times. They are selected from over 300 sketch paintings that Dr Ho made in 2012 and 2013.
We cordially invite you to visit the exhibitions at the Chinese Library Exhibition Area at Level 6!
