NETFLIX and WOOF

28 April. 4.30pm at 50 Tanjong Rhu Place

Calling all animal lovers and furry friends alike—Netflix is partnering with Save Our Street Dogs Singapore (SOSD) for possibly one of the most loving and fun dog adoption drives the city has seen: Netflix & Woof. Held this Saturday afternoon at 50 Tanjong Rhu Place, the event hopes to find new homes for dozens of furry friends (and new companions for equally loving humans), and everyone can get tons of photos together, either at the photobooth or by a caricature artist. A picnic-style screening of Benji under the stars will follow, and who better than your furry friends to just sit back and watch it with.

LE DÎNER EN BLANC

12 May, location to be revealed

Technically, this event will take place in May, but it’s Singapore’s hottest dinner experience, so it’s always wise to book your places in advance. Le Dîner en Blanc is back this year for its sixth edition, and as always, is super secretive about where it will be held. What we do know is that you will be charmed by the wonderful experience of dining together under the stars, all dressed in white of course! This year’s hosts are each exceptional in their own way as well—Brandmama’s Jasmine Tuan; founder of Wanderwine and co-founder of Chab Events, Alexis Lhoyer; and CEO and co-founder of Chab Events, Guillaume Chabrières—so you know you’ll be in good hands.

KATY PERRY – WITNESS: The Tour

A stage queen in so many ways, Katy Perry rules when it comes to pop songs, OTT wardrobes and dramatically original staging.

ART FROM THE STREETS EXHIBITION

On now till 3 June at the ArtScience Museum

For a city that’s long frowned upon unsanctioned public art, Singapore is now home to the region’s largest retrospective street art exhibition. There are floor-to-ceiling murals by Obey founder, Shepard Fairey; randomly placed mosaic works by Parisian artist, Invader; a spray paint masterpiece by graffiti legend Futura; an expressive wall by Singapore’s own Speak Cryptic; and a glass-encased Banksy. The exhibition curator, gallerist and street art expert, Magda Danysz says: “Street art is the most important art movement that has emerged in the 21st century—these artists are the Picassos of our time.” Residing under the same roof as fine, classical and contemporary art collections at the ArtScience Museum, this street art spectacle signals an urban revolution.
