CAA Singapore | OH! Open House Tour for Columbia Alumni

Join us for a special tour of Emerald Hill, organized and curated by OH! Open House, an art and heritage trail that explores neighbourhoods by taking guests to view art in unorthodox spaces. Discover the story of Emerald Hill through secret tours, art, and performances in homes and private spaces. Emerald Hill, a former nutmeg plantation, is a perfect illustration of the relationship between botany and commodities that circulate the Empire. But there is a dark side too. Scientific exploration exists alongside exploitation of new lands. Valuable crops are stolen, smuggled, and monopolised. The colonial still haunts us. Explore, collect, and piece together your very own story of Emerald Hill in 19th century Singapore.
