This weekend, Theo Jansen's sculptures land in Singapore, Cajun cuisine takes over Park Bench Deli and Ai Weiwei's documentary will make you think

EXHIBITION | Wind Walkers: Theo Jansen's Strandbeests
The first Southeast Asian exhibition of Theo Jansen's world famous moving sculptures, 'Wind Walkers: Theo Jansen's Strandbeests' is a chronicle of the Dutch sculptor's life work. Strandbeests are wind-powered machines developed by Jansen in a fusion of art, science, engineering and performance. A visual treat of 13 large-scale Strandbeests await in the gallery with the largest standing at 10 meters tall and weighing over 240kg.

ART | Eyepop! The Wonderful World Of Yeah Yeah Chloe
An exhibition curated for kids, 'Eyepop! The Wonderful World Of Yeah Yeah Chloe' introduces pop culture through the refreshing art and lens of Yeah Yeah Chloe. The Australian artist has had her first solo show in Hong Kong and notable collaborations with Nike and UNICEF — ironically, she hated drawing as a high-schooler. Explore the interactive artworks, games and animations which look at life in a surreal and cheekily morbid way.
