Things to do in Singapore this weekend: Cool events and activities to include in your calendar — Singapore Art Week edition
State of the art
FILM | State of Motion 2019: Fear of Monsters
From the vampiric Pontianak of Malay mythology to the Nang Tani of Thai folklore, spooky tales have thrilled and transcended generations. For almost a whole month, the Asian Film Archive presents a film history exhibition that retraces Asian horror and the monsters that have terrorised the silver screen since the 1920s. Held at Kampong Bugis, go on interactive guided night tours that were developed in partnership with visual and performance artist ila that will surely send chills down your spine.
ART | S.E.A. Focus
With the sole vision of championing Southeast Asian modern and contemporary art, the inaugural edition of S.E.A. Focus revolves around a pop-up boutique art fair at the Gillman Barracks that will feature more than 25 local and regional galleries. There's also a pretty impressive line-up of panel discussions on art patronage, collecting and diversity with notable figures such as Chinese collector Lu Xun and Museum MACAN's director Aaron Seeto.
