Things To Do This Weekend (7 – 9 October)

Here’s a lineup of the go-to events: from art exhibitions to a comedy show, we’ve got your weekend packed with activities.
1. Meows in Museum


If you are not a cat lover, hopefully this exhibition will change your mind. Russian artist Svetlana Petrova’s sense of humour unfurls in her tongue-in-cheek renditions of classical art paintings where her 10kg cat, Zarathustra, becomes the centrepiece. Her exhibition in Singapore will showcase 20 pieces of works including Chia Mia Tee’s famous Epic Poem of Malaya. You can check out the rest of her art here.
Date: 6 – 30 October 2016

2. K+ Colourplan


K+ is a curator, collaborator and a place showcasing beautiful pieces by local and foreign artists. To celebrate the launch of Colorplan in Southeast Asia, K+ is working with RJ Paper to feature the works of 6 creatives, whose art installations push the boundaries of what paper can do. The exhibition will also feature notebooks produced exclusively and designed by 50 local and international designers.
The Colorplan range was first created in 1972, inspired by the explosion of colour in popular culture. It was a pioneering paper range which had a scope and scale that was, up till then, simply unheard of: 50 vibrant colours, 25 embossings, and 8 weights. In the hands of creative designers and forward-thinking printers, Colorplan changed the landscape of printed communications with its vision of inspiring the next generation of creative pioneers.
