Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts

Continue the festivities with Huayi with an array of exciting and specially curated programmes of performances across theatre, dance, music and visual arts.

We highly recommend the Chinese adaptation of the Shakespeare classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by Olivia Yan starring Golden Horse Award-winner Anthony Wong as the Fairy King Oberon and Theseus as well as popular Hong Kong actress Candice Yu as Queen Hippolyta and Titania. The most popular contemporary play in China – Secret Love in Peach Blossoms Land – is making its return after it’s first debut 10 years ago at Huayi 2007 and will make its special 30th anniversary edition this year.

A Seal of Unity: A Double Happiness

Phil Akashi is having a solo exhibition in Singapore till Mid-March. Phil’s work strives to rephrase the Asian literati tradition of text and image. Oftentimes, his text becomes the image and his images are comprised of characters, thus eliminating the categorical distinctions so that they are fluidly unified as a single entity.

This notion of merger is eloquently expressed in his current solo exhibition in the series Rings on Fire. He activates the Chinese character of Double Happiness (囍) as the symbol and metaphor of conjugal bliss to succinctly question the double meanings inherent in the realities associated with matrimony.

What: A Seal of Unity: A Double Happiness
When: Until Wednesday, 15 March 2017
Where: Art+ Shanghai Gallery – Singapore Art Space, #15-06 Cliveden at Grange 108 Grange Rd, Singapore 249636 
What time: 10.00am-6.30pm
