1/4 Love and Light Festival

What For those looking to rejuvenate themselves this weekend, look no further because the Love and Light Festival's got you covered. Held at the Melati Room at Marina Bay Sands, the holistic festival will allow you to have a go at the various activities, setting you on a spiritual and invigorative journey of healing. If you have been feeling stretched at work and home recently—try crystal healing, as it attempts to alleviate stress and positively interact with your body's chakra. To enhance your self-awareness and control anxiety, the meditation sessions will provide a quiet impact in your day-to-day routine, while tarot card reading sessions can provide a little more clarity in life.

2/4 Colour Feast by Olan Ventura

What Bringing the vibrant beat of his native country to Singapore, Filipino artist Olan Ventura translates the dynamic pulse of the Philippines onto canvas and awes with a wide spectrum of colours. The solo exhibition at Yavuz Gallery shows Ventura portraying an array of still-life works from the old masters of traditional art, adding a layer of aesthetic sensibility that comments on today's use of digital printing. Showing the potential errors in the mechanical printing process, the effect seems to melt, blend and mix colours to result in an explosive visual treat.

3/4 Merdeka, the Lonesome Club by Minstrel Kuik

What Minstrel Kuik's solo exhibition at Richard Koh Fine Art Singapore will feature 19 new works, each exploring the structure and intricacies of Malaysian democracy and its representative system. Using fabric as a medium, she mixes and matches political flags, and deconstructs its form to create an new visual language that emphasises on materiality. Apart from the visual impact that Minstrel creates, she also highlights the intrinsic link between art and politics—the visual power that the creative sector harnesses.
