Community Quilts, a painting exhibition with a Singapore flavour, launches on Saturday

Any plans for the weekend? How about visiting this exhibition of paintings which are distinctively Singaporean.

Head to Rochor Centre (Level 4, Block 4 void deck) for the exhibition, Community Quilts, on Saturday (Dec 6) from 11am to 1 pm.

The project is part of SG50 Celebration Fund and is inspired by small pockets of spaces that had a distinctive Singaporean flavour but were often overlooked.

Each series is made up of eight vertical panels with each consisting of three to four photographs of various subjects superimposed onto one another. 

The panels are then weaved together into a seamless whole.

The photographs form an expansion of the traditional concept of a family portrait that captures people living.

If you are not into paintings, here are other options to jazz up your weekend.
