As the weekend approaches, there are a 101 things I wish I could be at and can’t, so I thought I’d mention them here so anyone who chances upon it and loves the same things I do or is looking for a refreshing place to be at could give it a try and experience it for me.
1 Nameless Forms
Nameless Forms is the first exhibition of LATENT SPACES at Haw Par Villa.
LATENT SPACES, temporarily homed at Haw Par Villa till October this year, is an initiative that adopts idle spaces in Singapore and reinvents them as platforms for experimental art and social entrepreneurship.
Nameless Forms will study material culture through investigating the past of artifacts in now defunct places, bridging the gap between past and present. This is just the pioneer art project of LANTENT SPACES and expect more to take place throughout the year!
(Haw Par Villa, 262 Pasir Panjang Road, Singapore 118628)

Weekends are the time not just to catch up with homework and classes and friends and family but the time to get a day out, or even just an afternoon to be at places you want to be and do things you’ve been interested in. I always think about what a waste it would be if we all spent every weekend doing work only.
