OH! Open House: Emerald Hill


  • Emerald Hill Road Singapore Singapore (map)

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. Our very own Kirti Bhaskar Upadhyaya (VA 2012) is the assistant curator for this year's edition.
