The weekend is calling us for cheeseburgers and fried chicken, a Japanese art exhibition, summer parties and catching Pokemon.
The month of June keeps on giving us a multitude of events. This week, take your old man out for Father’s Day, get cultured at a Japanese art exhibition, party like there’s no tomorrow at a series of blowouts and do some heavy duty feasting.
Celebrate: It’s Father’s Day!
Go all out this Father Day by taking dad to a fabulous lunch or dinner. We’re talking bottomless brunches, big fat breakfasts, hearty roasts and massive seafood spreads that will fosho get your dad’s seal of approval. Check our Father’s Day dining guide for the full scoop.
Culture: Art of Tomorrow Japanese art exhibition
Culture vulture? You’ll love this. Feast your eyes on Japanese ink paintings, prints and photographs, crafts, sculptures, calligraphy and literary arts from over 50 modern Japanese artists. Japanese animation and cuisine has taken over our lives but Asian art culture? Not so much. The organisers of this exhibition, Japan-Europe Palace Arts Association (JEPAA), aims to change that perception. They sure are going in the right direction with this exhibition.
Art of Tomorrow, 11am-8pm, Visual Arts Centre Singapore, 10 Penang Road, #01-02 Dhoby Ghaut Green, Singapore 238469
