What’s on

As You Were

Previously, we had Arts in Your Neighbourhood, now it is time for art in your parks! Look forward to a series of interactive and larger-than-life installations at three different parks - Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, Jurong Lake Gardens and Punggol Waterway Park. The latest addition comes courtesy of As You Were, a public art showcase commissioned by the Public Art Trust (PAT) under the National Arts Council. The showcase features works by local artists Daniel Chong, Hazel Lim, Adeline kuah, Teo Huey Ling, Ang Song Nian, Quek Jia Qi and Aaron Lim. Highlights include Daniel Chong’s quirky half-eaten biscuit and a larger-than-life paper cup telephone by Quek and Aaron Lim. These movement encourages the artists to create meaningful artworks that interact with the public as well. More details here.

Gallery Children’s Biennale

  • Festivals

Got a mini Picasso at home? Unlock your child's creativity with the third edition of Gallery Children's Biennale. But with the current restrictions, expect a comeback like nothing before. Instead of the usual labyrinth of interactive artworks at National Gallery Singapore, the bi-yearly multi-sensorial art experience returns with its first-ever hybrid edition from May 22, 2021 until December 2022. The inaugural "phygital" edition kicks off with an online experience via a kaleidoscopic microsite on May 22, followed by on-site art installations at National Gallery Singapore on September 4. And that's not the only first. With the microsite, the Biennale also goes global for the very first time too, making its exciting arty programmes available to children all around the world. Guided on the inquiry "Why Art Matters", the Biennale highlights the importance of home, diversity, time and the environment through art and imaginative play. The curious kiddos can look forward to interactive online adventures, immersive storytelling sessions, and digital artmaking with local and international artists as well as fellow children from other countries. When it comes to the artworks, the Biennale is not short of eye-catching online works and on-site installations that families can engage with. These are specially created by nine local and international artists including Dinh Q Lê (Vietnam), Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan (Philippines/Australia), Jeremy Sharma (Singapore), Joyce Ho (Taiwan), Kh

Brotherbird Bakery's Sengkang Shell station pop-up

  • Bakeries

From September 1 to October 31, it’s an entirely new slew of croissants and fresh bakes over at a new Brotherbird Bakehouse pop-up. This time, it’s held at a Shell station in Sengkang (61 Sengkang East Road).  While the selection predominantly caters to the sweet tooth, with the likes of a rocher croissant, earl grey milk chocolate, and churros croissant, there will also be savoury options such as the twice-baked mentaiko prawn croissant and pizza danish. Other interesting bakes include the twice-baked pistachio croissant, lemon meringue croissant, and cinnamon brown sugar knots.  It’s open from 4pm to 9pm on weekdays, and 11am to 4pm on weekends. Head down early though – the croissants and other bakes are only available till they sell out. While the previous pop-up at a Tampines Shell station was a hit, they will soon be closed on August 31. In addition to the CT Hub2 and 32 Bali Lane outlets, Brotherbird Bakehouse is also currently planning for north and west locations for future pop-ups.

Mercedes-Benz x local toy designer Minishi: limited edition EQS collectibles

It’s a strange world we live in now – global warming is becoming a more serious issue by day. For folks to truly grasp the consequences of our own actions, Mercedes-Benz has a new collaboration with local toy designer Minishi, a creative studio known for its novel toys and forward-thinking concepts.  They’ve come up with a limited edition EQS Collectible Kit, one that’s clearly inspired by the sleek but also environmentally-friendly design of the Mercedes-Benz EQS. Each kit has a sculpture of the EQS (only 65 units in total!) and there are also 12 specially-designed Artist Editions, with colourful splashes and uniquely imprinted designs. The sculptures are made from gypsum, a non-toxic recyclable material while the kit’s packaging itself is made from bamboo – which is both recyclable and durable. Each kit also comes with a paint palette made from upcycled local trees where interestingly, the watercolour paints are made from extracts of blue pea flower, mango leaves, and yellow flame blossoms. It also includes a set of paintbrushes and an apron.It’s a treasured kit you can bring home by joining the raffle here, where winners will be announced October 3.
