The Force will be strong in Singapore as ArtScience Museum and Pico Pro combine their powers to host STAR WARS Identities from 30 January to 13 June 2021. This marks the final stop of the exhibition’s global tour.

Developed and produced by Montreal’s X3 Productions in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., the exhibition presents close to 200 original items from the extensive Lucas Museum of Narrative Art archive to explore the science of identity through the characters of Star Wars. Visitors will embark on a customised, interactive identity quest to gain new insights on the Star Wars characters while discovering their own identities at the end of the quest, aimed at allowing them to answer the simple yet profound question: What force shapes you?

The STAR WARS Identities Experience

STAR WARS Identities places visitors at the centre of the exhibition experience with an interactive identity quest that spans the duration of the visit. Closely interwoven with the collection and content, the experience gives the visitors the opportunity to discover their own personal identities in the Star Wars galaxy.

The vast and exclusive showcase includes some 200 authentic props, models, costumes, and artwork from the original Star Wars films. This rich collection spans the original Star Wars canon, drawing from the classic (1977 – 1983) and prequel (1999 – 2005) trilogies, the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as Star Wars: The Force Awakens™. Fan favourites such as Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Yoda, and the Millennium Falcon – among many others – will be on display.

RFID (radio frequency identification) wristband will be issued to each visitor before they enter the exhibition 

STAR WARS Identities has divided its study of human identity into three major exhibition themes: the characters’ origins (Origins), the influences that shaped them (Influences), and the personal choices that altered their lives (Choices).

Within these three themes, 10 components of human identity are explored: species, genes, parents, and culture in Origins; mentors, friends, and marking events in Influences; and occupation, personality, and values in the final zone, Choices.

These components form the backbone of the exhibition, exploring the complex notion of identity both in the real world and in creative fiction. Original content throughout the exhibition will shed light on each of the components of identity. “Making-of” featurettes will be shown at STAR WARS Identities as they explore the stories behind the development of iconic Star Wars characters, explaining how they became who they are, and showing how different creative choices could have made them different characters.
