Feast your eyes on a visual treat at the ArtScience Museum. Titled Floating Utopias, this playful yet poetic exhibition explores the history of inflatable objects, showcasing the effects they have on art, architecture and social activism over the decades after the first hot air balloon took off. 

Catch the masterpieces of over 15 international and local artists including Ant Farm, Tools for Action (Artúr van Balen and Tomás Espinosa), Anna Hoetjes, Ahmet Öǧüt, Graham Stevens, Luke Jerram and Dawn Ng. Out of the 40 artworks featured, eight are of giant inflatables that are suspended in the galleries to amp up the dramatic displays. Highlights include the impressive outdoor installation, Castle of Vooruit (2012), by Turkish artist Ahmet Öğüt, and a new version of British artist Luke Jerram's giant lunar sculpture, Museum of the Moon, which is also commissioned by the museum to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing in 1969.
