M1 Singapore Fringe Festival

Kickstart your new year with this controversial festival that has been dominating the headlines with its curated (and cancelled) shows! Start with Akulah BIMBO SAKTI (I am the MAGIC BIMBO) by Noor Effendy Ibrahim at Black Box, Centre 42 and explore the rituals that we perform in our domestic spaces and end your exploration of skins with Skin Tight, where performers attempt to liberate themselves from gender, age and beauty.

Singapore Art Week
11 January to 22 January 2017

Commence with Fantasy Islands, a work curated by Kin Chiu and Mitha Budhyarto – it explores the notions of borders which is held at Objectifs – Centre for Photography and Film, or drop by Capitol Piazza and create your own prints at The Contemporary Printmaking Festival. If you prefer street art, drop by the Aliwal Arts Centre for the one-day Aliwal Urban Art Festival and check out the carefully curated selection of art inspired by international street art. Welcome the weekend with Art After Dark at Gillman Barracks, the highlight event of Singapore Art Week, and enjoy an unforgettable evening of live music, food and contemporary art.
