Batik KitaDressing in Port Cities is the latest special exhibition by Singapore’s Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), and celebrates the Southeast Asian heritage. It features over 100 masterpieces from overseas and local lenders, as well as rarely seen pieces from the National Collection.

The exhibition explores the rich history and culture of batik and batik making, from its traditional roots to contemporary designs. Visitors are invited to step into an exquisite world of batik textiles that cut across cultures and ethnic backgrounds and explore the dynamic possibilities of batik as fashion through the years.

It also introduces innovations by batikers in the age-old craft and showcases how batik charted the evolution of new identities in the newly formed nations of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore.
