5 things to do this weekend: 7 - 9 October
EXHIBITION | What is Not Visible is Not Invisible
Sometimes, what you see is not necessarily what you get. The National Museum of Singapore is hosting 34 artworks by 32 artists from the French Regional Collections of Comtemporary Art (FRAC) in its first showing of this collection in Asia Pacific. Chill out on towels in Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster's David Lynch-like urban beach, or negotiate the space filled with 1,300 balloons in Martin Creed's work.
Opening today till 19 February 2017 at National Museum of Singapore. For more details, click here.
ART | DAIDO x DECK Opening Party: Daido Moriyama Prints & Books 60s-80s
Set in a dark Japan, Daido Moriyama is notoriously acclaimed for his grainy and bokeh-ful take on the deteriorating post-war traditional values in lesser-seen urban areas. For a night of honest monochromatic stills and homegrown Middle Class Cigars' electronic thrills, head on over to DECK.
7 October, 7.30pm-12am at DECK. For more details, click here.
ART | Girl Gang
An artwork series by an all-women crew of artists, it explores the female sensuality through diverse work of arts: From Charmaine Poh's coming-of-age shots of Singapore girls to Yashasvi Mathis' poppy paintings of contorted figures. Be sure to stick around for a satirical punk performance by femme band NO PANTZ.
8 October, 7-10pm at Artistry. For more details, click here.
ART & MARKET | Archifest x Barter Market
If you have yet to drop by the rainbow-hued pavilion to flip a table, here's your chance: Archifest is hosting a barter market where you get to trade your old zines or a smile for a form of art that traverses from Drool Stamps' poetic handcarved stamps to a live musical performance by homegrown act Stanley Ho. Flip one while you're at it.
9 October, 2-6pm at Archifest Pavilion, Raffles Place Park. For more details, click here.
FOOD & PARTY | Esquina Alley Fiesta
The Spanish diner known for its rustic industrial cues and succulent tapas is throwing an Ibiza-styled food bash you wouldn't want to miss. With signature meals of premium octopus and beef ribeye for $15 a pop, be warned: Food comas are inevitable.
9 October, 5-10pm at Esquina. For more details, click here.
